My Plans are NOT His
Hello hello everyone. It's been a minute since my last blog or whatever we call these now days.
As many of you know, Terry and I have temporary custody of my 9-year-old cousin. Never in my wildest dreams was that ever in my plan. Trust me, I have prayed and prayed about it. It was hard enough raising my own kids with all the pressures of this world and thankfully they all turned out to be good humans. As my friend Tracy would say, they are good eggs. i
I don't know what the plan is for the long term but God does. I have to remind myself daily that this is all in HIS plan and HIS plans are far better than mine.
I say all this as a reminder to all of you. No matter what we are going through, no matter what season of life we are in, things can change and it will all be worth it. Do it with a smile even if you have to lock yourself in a bathroom and cry now and then. Do it prayerfully. God has a plan for all of us even when we don't know what it is. Can you imagine if we did? We would probably try to hide under a rock or wonder how on earth will that happen. Remember God is already there and He knows how we will get there.... with HIM by our side.
Jeremiah 29:11 "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 a hope and a future."
That's what I hope I can do for this sweet boy God has brought into my life.
