Waiting

I am not sure what God's plan is for me in my life.  But I know that He has one, and it is good, a plan to prosper me, and not do me harm.  A plan for hope and a future (from Jeremiah 29:11).

I have been, and am still holding on to this promise.  It's not easy because I don't know what it is, and I want to know.  For now, I know that my plan is not the same as His, and that sucks.  But, I have to trust that He knows what He's doing.  Only He knows what he has planned for me.

When I was putting together the bible verses booklet for Jack and Ellie, I gave them this bible passage to encourage them.  Now I am also claiming this for myself.

Psalm 27: 13-14
13 I am still confident of this:
       I will see the goodness of the LORD
       In the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD;
      be strong and take heart
      and wait for the LORD.

I am claiming this for myself: I will see God's goodness in this my life.  I will continue to wait on Him, to be strong, and to take heart.  I will not quit.  And I will continue to wait and trust Him.

I know God is up to something.  He has something planned for my life.  I just need the peace and patience to wait on Him.

  1. Amen, sister! Nothing is more precious to our Lord than waiting - quietly, patiently, confidently - in His presence. Praying that your time of waiting, seeking & healing will bring you closer to Him and for Him to reveal great & mighty things He wants you to have.

  3. When you surrender EVERYTHING to Him, your plan will be His plan. A heart of surrender is a heart that God can finally use. Waiting isn't just waiting, it's preparation for something greater than you can even imagine.

    I'm so excited to see how God is going to use you!

  10. Waiting for God's plan to play out is so difficult. I often have to remind myself that it's in His time not mine.
