If you feel that life has trampled on your dreams and that things haven’t turned out as you had hoped remember this… God deals with the reality and actuality of your life, not the “What ifs” and “maybes”. He meets you exactly where you are. He is not waiting for you where you might have ended up or where He wanted you to be. He knows and understands the twists and turns your life has taken; He forgives your mistakes and cries with you about wrongs done to you. He is ready to move you forward in a new direction and, if you let him, will lead you beside still waters and into a reality beyond your wildest dreams.
God accepts you just as you are – no conditions attached. God loves you completely – no conditions attached. God desires good for you in every circumstance – no conditions attached. God pours grace and mercy into your life – no conditions attached. God longs for you to follow Him, love Him, trust Him – no conditions attached.
No matter what your past holds it doesn’t need to control your future. The power of God can set you free, the grace of God can bring you total forgiveness and the wisdom of God can set you on the right path. Don’t let your past rob you of your future.
Do you have a plan for your life? Do you know where you are headed? Do you know your final destination? God says that He knows the plans He has for us. He says that they are good plans, plans to prosper us. Jesus said that He is preparing a place for us. A place where there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. Our job is simply to seek God for those plans and follow them. Will you spend time today seeking God?
If God answered all your prayers in the way that you wanted Him to would the world be a better place because of them?
Worry says that you are not trusting God to be all-powerful, ever present and capable of overcoming any and every situation you face.
Lord, today I choose to trust you, help me to trust more. Amen
