Always Moving Forward
Time keeps moving forward, no matter what. There may be times when the future seems overwhelming, even daunting and we just want to stay in the present, or relive the past. No matter how difficult the future may be time is constantly moving forward. None of us have the superpower to stop time.
When I am unsure of the future, I go to God. He has a plan for my life, it is a plan for my good. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." God's plans are better than our plans could be. Isaiah 55:9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. We can trust God with our future, no matter the outlook.
The next time you get overwhelmed by the future remember that God has a good plan for you. All you need to do is trust in that. God loves you and wants His best for you. When I was in my early twenties, I had mapped out my entire future, before I was even 25 all of my plans had failed and I was angry with God. I carried that for a very long time. One day, someone said to me, "You have such a great life, you have a husband who loves you, a beautiful home, a great job, you have it all. In that moment that anger reared its ugly head and my response was that what I had wasn't what I had planned for myself and I told her my plans. She then answered me by saying, "Don't you see that what you have now is so much better?" It took me a few minutes to process that. She was right! Everything I had imagined for myself, would have ended in my unhappiness.
Do not waste years wishing you had some ideal, take a step back and look at all of the blessings in your life, you just might realize that you have more than you ever wanted right now, and never even realized it.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
