Plans? Oh, Yes!
Days are different. My Mama is gone from my daily life as she has gone to be with our Lord. The routine of fifteen years has changed. My husband and I are starting anew with release, sorrow, unsurety, unknowns, knowns. We look at one another and question, “What’s next?” We say aloud, “We must find our way. We must turn to the Lord for He knows the way.” And we know that He does for He promised us that He has a plan.
11 ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
12 ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
13 ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
14 ‘I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord,….”
God does have plans for us. He keeps His promises. He keeps them each and every day. He delivers and blesses. Our hope and future are in His hands. And we have hope because we trust Him. We trust Him because He is faithful. We trust in His Son, Jesus, Who delivers us from every storm, from every foe.
Give me faith, O Lord, as I walk the unknown. I walk with You. Give me faith during the times I’m weary, discouraged, and beaten down. Inspire me to trust in Your great promises. Please give me courage, O Lord, when my faith wavers. Help me obey Your Word no matter how challenging it may seem or how discouraged I feel. Thank You for giving me a bright future in Jesus. Please help me live more consciously aware of Your beautiful gift. Please show me Your way. I depend upon You completely. To stay the course is not easy, but I want to! I want to walk with You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
