God’s Plans for 2015

I woke up with a blog post in my head this morning.  That hasn’t happened in a very long time.

I’ve been praying about what God wants me to do with this blog, especially since I haven’t done anything with it since July.  Maybe this means He is beginning to show me.

"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 a hope and a future."  ~ Jeremiah 29:11 #bibleverses

Jeremiah 29:11 gets used over and over, many times even misused. The scripture doesn’t promise that life is going to be easy or you are going to be wealthy or that your body will remain healthy, but the Lord does say that He has a plan for you.

It’s a perfect plan for He is perfect.

However, we live in a fallen world.

Our world is not perfect.

It is filled with sin and death and hurt.  Many people know what it feels like to live with illness and poverty and hunger.  And while there are many things I can’t understand or have a reason why God allows people to suffer through so much hurt or pain, I hold tight to the promise that He is in control.

He has a plan.

I just have to trust Him enough to take each step of the journey with Him.

I pray that in 2015 each of us will trust Him enough to take a step.

Then take one more step…and another…and another…

until His perfect plan is revealed in final victory.

Living thru faith,
