"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." - Jeremiah 29:11
I’m sure many of us entered 2018 with goals and aspirations that we long to fulfil. Whether it be getting a promotion, new home, dream body, marriage... the list goes on.
But truth is...we don’t really know what this year will hold. Life unfolds one day at a time, in fact moment by moment. This sense of unknown (not knowing what tomorrow may bring) can be scary, especially when life doesn’t seem to be going the way we planned.
But rest assured that every experience and every moment, has been planned out and ordained by a God who thinks and wants nothing but the best for you (Jeremiah 29:11) .
Be encouraged and find peace in the fact that absolutely nothing can or will happen without God’s say so and in every single moment He is there.
So I dare you this year, in fact today even in this moment as you’re reading this blog, to embrace the good, the challenging and the unexpected. Stop worrying about the future and be fully confident that you are where God wants you to be at this very moment. Rest, assured that every experience is part of his divine plan.
