Running Scared.

"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." -Jeremiah 29:11

Lately I've been running scared. To everyone and everything but the One who wants me most....

I feel like so much of my life is uncertainty right now. Which is crazy since I believe planning things out to be one of my strengths. I almost always have a plan for how I think things are going to happen before they actually do. I envision the end result I'm expecting before I even make a single move.

So the fact that the Lord has given me this blank page in my life right now is so terrifying....

Or is it??

The devil tries to tell me that it is. He's seemed to know exactly which insecurities and temptations to throw at me these past few weeks so that I'm left feeling scared. Feeling inadequate. Feeling weak.

But the truth is, my life isn't a blank page. It isn't empty at all. It's completely planned out. Completely orchestrated. Completely finished. And what's even better is I don't have to worry about a thing, other than listening to Jesus' voice, as He whispers the plan to me. In His own time. In His own way.

"I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing - one that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me - expecting the greatest things.
Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things I tell you - you just wait. That's all - don't be anxious - don't worry - don't look around at the things others have gotten or that I've given them. Don't look at the things you think you want. Just keep looking off up to Me or you'll miss what I want to show you."

  1. I feel like we are experiencing some of the same emotions and being taught some of the same lessons these days. It is definitely scary to NOT know what is next- but God knows and God loves you so much. That is what I have been trying to rest on these past few months as I wait to find out what's next. Check out my latest post :)
    I love you and miss you. We need to catch up soon!
