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
There is no doubt in my mind that God’s mercy and his grace are the only reason that I am still alive. At this point of my life, I have come to realize that I must let God use me for his purpose, and also let him put into actions the plans, that he does have for me. I believe that He created me for a reason, and for a purpose. A purpose that I ignore, but I am learning to trust him every day that I take a breath, for his plans can never fail. In my human nature I sometimes try to go my way, and make my decisions, but when God has his hands on you, you always find a way to go back to him, and pray that he will guide you, because nothing seems right once you have gone astray. I have no idea how much left I have here on earth, but I hope that I won’t interfere with his plans, and be humble and faithful to him. As long as I have fulfilled his mission, and have prepared my self, and my heart, and he sees that I am ready, I believe that is when I will no longer be.
That’s the reason I’m still alive, because God is using me to perhaps help someone in need, feed someone who’s hungry, smile to someone who has lost hope, or sing life into someone who felt like life is worthless…. whatever his reasons may be, may his will be done!
