Freedom Friday: My Future
Hi everyone to the first Freedom Friday!!!
The day when I "let go and let God" take over something in my life!!
Well I think this stems off of the post I did on Monday...
Today... I am going to let go of my future... :)
(Now to clarify... that doesn't mean letting go of being a good steward of what I have in my hands or what God clearly makes my responsibility to accomplish, but it means to stop worrying and forcing plans!!)
So far whenever I have strived to put plans together instead of resting in the presence of God to lead me... it has never been quite right. But whenever I allow God to clarify the plans in His timing it has been MUCH MUCH better than mine!!!
Freedom Friday for my Future... LOL... cheesy I know!!!
I had a great quote from Cecile Turner just recently... "Remember - God is the King of the great exchanges - He exchanges worry for joy, fear for peace - etc."
Today... I exchange my Future worries for Peace and Trust in God. That already feels good!!
So my prayer is then....
Thank you God that you have me in the palm of your hands and that you have such greater plans for me than I could put together myself. I choose to let go of manufacturing a future and choose to trust and have peace in You to orchestrate the perfect path for me to journey. Thank you for my future and I pass it back into your hands!!!
~Lord, we pray that you will take all of our future's and create it into something beautiful. Encourage us to be a good steward of what we have a responsibility for and then help us to leave what is not ours to worry back into your hands.~
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.
God knows the plans He has for us!!! He declares that they are plans to prosper, to give hope and to give a future!! Wootwoot!! No need to worry!!!
Have a fantastic Weekend!!!
See you all on Meditation Monday!!!
