A New Chapter

Standard

Jer 29v11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

My plans, it would seem, are not God’s plans.

Eph 3v20
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.

God has provided everything I have ever needed. He has answered  many prayers. I know that He is answering more right now even though the future I thought was ahead has been turned upside down. It has been shaken and confused. It seems uncertain.

It is my future.

It is not broken. It is not ruined. God is in it. He is holding me tight and talking and taking me through it all. I have no fear or anxiety, just simple and unshakeable peace. I am grieving. I will miss the future I thought was coming. I am sad at the plans that will not be. But I know His plans are greater and more worthy than anything I’ve ever dreamed, and I dream a lot.

Soaring

Standard

Deut 32v11
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.

Isaiah 40v31
But those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
