Do you ever have a wave of excitement or joy overcome you for no reason? You aren't necessarily anticipating anything special but you just feel blessed?
I treasure those moments because life can be hectic and stressful. We rush around (especially as parents) from one thing to another and rarely have any time to ourselves. (Hence, why I've been slacking so much with this blog.)
But then......you just take a deep breathe and you realize how good God is and how thankful you are for your family, your health, your friends, your job, and for your life in general? I think this is God's way of carrying us through and reminding us that no matter what He is here and wants the best for us.
This verse reminds us of his promise to us in Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you", declared the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
How encouraging, especially when life doesn't go the way we had hoped or planned. It's all a part of God's master plan. If that doesn't excite you my friend I am not sure what will. I'm excited about my future cause I know God has orchestrated it. Are you excited about your future?
