Day 217 –
God has a mighty plan for each one of us.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Sometimes it’s hard to see past the dust and the ashes to see that there is any plan for our lives at all.
Nothing seems to go just as we dreamed it would. We start with such great aspirations for who we’re going to be and what we’re going to do; we lay out how many children we’ll have, who we’ll marry, where we will live, what car we’ll drive – all from a folded piece of paper in the 4th grade.
Yet, this too never comes to fruition.
Maybe you never became the doctor, your marriage fell apart after 30 years together, your child’s in rehab, one is lost, and the other won’t even speak to you. Where is God’s plan in all of this?!
But God does have a plan for us, a BIG AND BOLD AND GOOD plan at that.
Each one of us has been thought about, and the outline of our life has been drawn out.
What if we didn’t become that doctor because God wanted to move us from that school to meet the man of our dreams, give us 4 wonderful children, and place us in a ministry for His Purpose and Glory.
Each unfulfilled piece of OUR plan is just a step forward towards God’s great plan for our future.
At this point on your journey everything may seem a little blurry from your point of view, but let the dust settle, keep moving forward, and watch how God works everything out for the betterment of your future and His Glory.
