I can’t believe it is fall already. Wow. It’s a busy time for me at work and then when I finally get home, I’m busy wedding planning. No rest for the weary, right?
This month has undoubtedly been filled with a lot of ups and downs. There have been many. many times when I felt that life had taken a life of its own.
But one thing that has given me comfort when I felt that my life was spiraling out of control was the reminder that God is in control. Always.
God has plans for you. Plans for me. And no matter what crap you’re currently stepping in at the moment you can rest assured that God’s plans are to prosper and not harm you. He is in control when you are not. Isn’t that reassuring?
The Lord says, “I know the plans that I have for you. Plans to prosper and not harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
This is one of my absolute favorite verses. No matter what is going on in your life, if you just hang on to His words of a hope and a future, you will get through anything. Repeat just these two words that begin Jeremiah 29:11 to yourself:
When it looks like you won’t ever get to work your dream job, say: I know.
When it looks like you’ll never repay your student loan debts, say: I know.
When you think that you’ll never have the love that you desire, say: I know.
I know, the Lord says.
I KNOW the plans that I have for you.
I KNOW the plans will prosper you.
Hang in there, friend.
