For I Know the Plans….

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.

This is just a reminder to someone today that God loves you. No matter what it looks like right now, He has a plan for your life.

You are not forgotten!

You are not alone!

You are LOVED!

This situation too will pass!

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for always being here for me, even when I don’t realize it, or feel you near. God, things seem crazy and chaotic right now, but I know you have great plans for my life. This trial is not who I am. I will overcome. This situation will work together for my good. Help me to trust Your plan even when I don’t understand. Thank you in advance for what You are doing, and for what You are going to do in my life. I love you and I know you love me. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way on today!
