I look to You

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

Growing up I had so many dreams and plans of where and what I wanted to be in life .  I had made plans for the life I wanted to live, but honestly I felt that something was missing.  All the while I had sought what I was created to be, and I had not realized that I had been preparing for it all this time. God works in mysterious ways.  Needless to say, God had me in training for sometime so He can get me ready. It is through the places I have passed I have grown to understand that God knew what I was going to do before it came to be. It is the same that he knows what I will say before I do so. Through all of it whether good or not so good He still loves me. No matter how many times I fell He gave me the strength to get back up and try again.

The one thing constant was change. Sometimes it was uncomfortable, but I got through it by the grace of God. Other times, it was like taking a road trip. For me, road trips are the best because it allows you to capture every person, place and thing. Moments like these I remember like it happened yesterday by blinking a few times it automatically stores in my personal folder in my mind.  I have had the pleasure to meet some great people who have had an impact on my life whether big or small. Trust me I know this was no mistake because they were in those places for a reason. Especially in times I was desperately seeking God He gave me what I needed. There has been people from every walk of life given to pour into my life. Something that continues to resonate is that people come in your life for a reason, season and a lifetime.

I am so grateful to have a God who loves me throughout it all.  I trust and believe God with work everything out for the good.  It is His powerful and mighty spirit that provides me a comfort in His word, and the love He gives that is far more than this world can give. Moreover, it is just as the song says, “He has the whole world in His hands”. So I choose to embrace my journey because He knows what is best for me.
