Are you like me…you’re always thinking about what you need to do next? I’m almost always planning something in my mind, whether it be ministry opportunities or meals for the week. I feel an obligation to be productive. I’m in a place in my life where I’m trying to figure out what’s next…where am I going? I am restless because I am not where I really want to be. I am very tempted to try to make things happen but there is a small still voice inside my chaotic mind…it’s almost a whisper and it says: wait.
We are all quick to quote Jeremiah 29:11 that tells us God has a plan for our our life, a plan to give us hope and a future. My problem is that I often find myself giving God my blueprint for my future, rather than waiting for God’s plan to unfold.
I want to encourage you to spend less time planning for the future and more time living THIS day. What would today look like if we lived it with a heart, mind and soul completely surrendered to God? I bet we would not only find peace, but GOD’S plan unfolding.
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight”. Proverbs 3:5-6
That’s the path I want to be on!!
