"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." - Jeremiah 29:11
I saw this quote on someone else's facebook status today and it spoke to me. Then, I rented "Soul Surfer" from the Redbox, and again... Jeremiah 29:11 was repeated to me. FATE.
Sometimes I sit and wonder what I'm meant to do in this life, or who I'm meant to be. I've spent countless hours worrying about the outcome of my life, the choices I make, and the chances I take; and then I remember, that God is probably laughing at me for worrying about something that he has already decided. My life is what I make of it... I know that. But I also believe that He has a plan for me... and for everyone. The control freak inside of me struggles with this idea from time to time, but I know in my heart that everything will come about the way it is supposed to based on His ideas. He has "plans to give you hope and a future." What could possibly be better?
Day 19: When you are wondering about God's plan, and feeling uneasy about what life is bringing your way... take comfort in knowing that it's okay to NOT KNOW His plan... yet. And he will make your mission known in due time.
PS. If you haven't already seen "Soul Surfer," I strongly encourage you do. The strength of Bethany Hamilton is truly inspiring.
