Promise to You
Today I am grateful for:
- Peaceful moments of reflection where my heart speaks to God easily and openly.
- For God’s rhythm and pace that I am learning to be my own.
- God’s plan for my life. I don’t even know what it is…. and its ok. Knowing he has a plan for me is enough.
These words were the beginning of my gratitude, written in my journal on April 23 at 6:09 am.
When I got to that third one, I stopped and reflected on it for a bit. I wrote “BLOG” in bold letters next to it and moved on. Something spoke to my heart and felt like a great subject for you. I’ve written about this before so it’s not new, but it felt new in that moment. In this season of pandemic and uncertainty, something about knowing God has a plan and to settle into the mystery of it all… needs to be enough.
On Friday, April 24th at 7:09 am, I was again sitting at my desk writing in my journal.
The prompt “Promise to you” made me think about God’s promises and made me want to find some for my day. As I began writing, I glanced at the page to the left (see picture) and there was the word ‘BLOG’ in bold. As I found my ‘promise’ scriptures, I began drawing arrows because it all began linking together.
The scriptures don’t say, ‘I have a plan unless there’s a pandemic’ anywhere in those scriptures!
Nope, it says many times that He has a plan…….
- He CHOSE us and he JOINED us to Himself even BEFORE he laid the foundation of the universe. Ephesians 1:4
- His plan for us is for good and not disaster, to give us a FUTURE AND A HOPE. Jeremiah 29:11
- He has a destiny for each of us. Ephesians 2:10
- Before we were born, He planned in ADVANCE our destiny AND the good work we would do to fulfill it. Ephesians 2:10
I wrote in black to the far left “You know what the enemy would love for you to forget?” and drew an arrow to Jeremiah 29:11.
If the enemy of our soul can somehow distract us with a pandemic, it’s certainly possible we could….even for just a split second…..forget that God has a future for us.
Back in the day of Sunday School, I had a Sunday School teacher named Jack Thurman who would use this phrase a lot……..
I want you to know that you know that you know that you know….. in your ‘knower’ .
Friend, today….. this is my prayer for you…… to know in your knower ….. that there IS A PLAN. It’s His plan and its perfect for your life.
Can the knowledge that there is a plan be enough for right now?
Very Humbly Yours,
Resting in Knowing
