Am I Even On The Right Path Now?
Updated: Jan 11
Jeremiah 29:11 says, "I know the plans I have for you declares the lord. They are plans for good and not evil."
They are plans for good not evil....they are plans for abundant life.
When I think about God's plan for my life I imagine our lives like lines God draws in the sand. God has a line drawn and we walk the path. Life happens and we make choices. Our choices have consequences. We are called to pray, to seek God's will above our own.
Each time we pray, God draws us closer to his loving embrace. Each time, God asks for our trust.
Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us: Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
God watches us with loving eyes. God understands our hearts, No choice we make is a surprise to God. God already knows our story. The same God who placed each star in the sky, planned each beat of your heart.
I was struck by the song lyrics from Dan Bremnes song, Up Again..."you can make a couple wrong turns and still end up where you are supposed to be."
What a magnificent God we serve, and oh how he loves us!
