From the time I was old enough to dream, I have had my life planned out!
From my dream house to my fairy tale wedding, I knew exactly what I wanted! (Thanks Pinterest)
From a young age I felt the Lord call me into ministry. I had planned it out in my head how one day I would go to college, meet the man of my dreams, get married and travel the world together doing ministry. And I was CERTAIN that my picture perfect plan would happen just I had imagined it.
Well, fast forward a couple of years. Here I am, in college, single, and not really sure what life holds for me after graduation. To be honest, the unpredictability of what is next for me has been really hard to grasp, because my perfect plan seems to be slipping through my fingers.
What do we do when life isn’t working out the way we thought it would? What do we do when we are uncertain of what our future holds?
Maybe just maybe, that is exactly where God wants us to be.
Maybe it is in our uncertainty that we can finally be free to let God ACTUALLY work things out for our good.
In seasons of uncertainty, you can be CERTAIN that God’s got you. I don’t have to know what I’m going to do or who I’m going to do it with, all I have to do is KNOW the one who KNOWS!
When we are unsure, indefinite, or hesitant about letting go, we can rest in the fact that God’s perfect plan will unfold in his perfect timing. I can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy watching God open door after door for me.
It blows my mind that I can have no idea what, where, who, why, or how my life will unfold, but I can ENJOY my life while God is working all that out for me.
The pressures off, simply learn to trust the God who knows all things!
“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” – Matthew 6:31:34
