But what about...my future?
I am sure a lot of you were both excited and nervous about receiving your exam results this week. I remember it like it was yesterday, counting down the time until you can log on and see your results and the different scenarios that run through your head as you wait for your results.
The reassuring thing is that God has it all in hand. He sees the bigger picture and the Bible is clear that He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us. One of the passages that I got great comfort from when I was waiting on my results was the following:
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (The Message)
Even though we may have our hearts set on doing one particular thing it may not be in God’s plan for us. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and when I look back on my life and see plans that I had that have not happened, I am so pleased because God has had better things in store for me!! God does not break His promises and He will place us where He needs us to be to glorify Him.
Be blown away by how God will make things happen for you...things that you would have thought impossible… things that you would never have dreamt of…. things that the world would deem impossible….just to have you where He wants you to be.
Trust in Him and trust in His promises….
