Do you ever feel like all of a sudden the entire world is spinning around you, and you have no purpose...no plan for your life?
Don't worry...you're not alone.
Recently my husband and I made the HUGE move to Anchorage, and I was feeling super overwhelmed and stressed, but kept reminding myself that the Lord had a plan. I kept saying in my head "He knows what He is doing", but then in my spirit I was saying "Right?!". Surely God doesn't uproot your life completely, move you to basically another country, and not have a plan...right?!
Even though I know that God promises us that He has a plan for our lives, it is hard to truly believe that when you are going through a major transition in your life. During these transitions such as a move, a job change, losing a family member, losing job, or whatever it may be, it is easy to let the world start spinning around us and get lost in the drama of it all. This is when we have to ask the Lord to place His hand on the spinning top of our lives, to make us stop and feel His peace and reassurance.
I had one of these reassuring moments the other day when my husband texted me to look outside. He told me a pilot was drawing things with his jet stream! I ran outstide to see this amazing feat, and as I looked up I felt a huge childish smile crawl across my face. My hard shell of emotion started to melt away, and I felt the Lord giving me peace and reassuring me that He had everything under control. As small and silly as watching jet stream art may seem, it was a peace instilling moment for me. God knows that simple childish things make me feel complete, and full of joy! He knows His children inside and out, and will provide small moments like this for us to be reminded that He is standing right next to us.
I want to remind you of the passage Jeremiah 29:11 | For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
God does have a plan for you! He promises us this. The plan may be small or big, but either way...He has a plan for you, and that plan will fulfill you and bring Him glory! Be encouraged today, and know that Jesus Christ loves you, and that His love is unfailing...even though we fail Him every single day. Now that is love my friends!
