For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm
you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
For me, this verse simply means that God always has a plan for you. Sometimes you may not be
able to see what that plan is, but keep in mind when you are faced with a decision, big or small,
the Lord can take the weight off your shoulders if you let Him.
I have turned to this verse many times in the past months as I was struggling to find the right
path for myself after high school. I am admittedly a bit of a control freak, I like to plan things
out, even the little things sometimes. If I have a lot to do in a certain day, I make a schedule and
I try to stick to it. But I was thrown of my game during my senior year of high school.
My senior year hit like a bag of bricks to the face. All of a sudden, I was given so many different
options that had real consequences, and every single option had a totally different path that
went along with it. Not having a solid plan was killing me, but I found comfort in the fact that
God has a plan me.
But here is the great thing: He doesn't just have a plan for me, He has one
for you as well.
A simple but powerful prayer: Lord, I pray for patience and wisdom when facing decisions. It
may not be clear to me right now, but I know that you have a plan for me. Thank you. In Jesus'
