Jeremiah 29:11 (NRSV)
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
1 Corinthians 13:12 (NRSV)
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.
Do you believe that God truly has a plan for your life or are you on your own. When have you noticed God’s active presence in your life? Did you know it at the time – or when you looked back. As you look toward your future, what is your anticipation of God’s work in your life?
Eternal God, Creator of all that is, let us never forget that we am precious and beloved by You. Keep us mindful that we have been created for a purpose even though it is oftentimes difficult for us to see where we fit in Your plan; difficult to understand where we belong within the framework of Your love. Help us to trust You to put the pieces of our lives together according to Your plan and for Your purposes, even when we cannot see and help us to rejoice when things fit perfectly in place. In the name of Christ my Lord we pray. AMEN.
