His plans

I have found myself questioning the direction my life should take as I am standing at a crossroads right now. While I felt that God was leading me towards a certain area I began to question if I was / am able to go in that direction.

The cry of my heart was then telling God I am not sure where you want me to go. Can't you just draw me a map with step by step instructions on how to get there?
(you have to admit sometimes that would just be nice)

As I was listening for a response this came to mind.

Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)

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.

God has not abandoned me before, not in my darkest moments, or my greatest triumphs. When I didn't have strength to carry on he carried me.

So I will continue on and in those moments I don't have the strength to continue, it's ok 'cause Gods got my back.

I really enjoyed this post. It speaks very true to the loss we sometimes feel when we are unsure if God is with us or not. But that is what having faith is all about. So we continue on. You are strong and will figure it out along the way. I know you will triumph in the end.

Great post and thank you for sharing. I've been feeling the same way recently and that is definitely something I needed to be reminded of.

what a great reminder...I struggle everyday...(some worse than others)...to give up MY will and trust in Gods will...in HIS time not mine. Part of bein human?
