“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.
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.
