Best Plans

 … from my vacation journal

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.” Jeremiah 29:11-14

God KNOWS my plan (even when I don’t)

  • its a good plan
  • it’s filled with hope

God HEARS my prayers (even when I doubt)

  • I must give my whole heart
  • I must search with all my strength

God HOLDS my purpose (even when I delay)

  • He’s preparing
  • He’s possessing

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” C.S. Lewis
