One eye on the Future

Wouldn’t it be nice if God gave us an idea of what to expect out of life. A pre-look at births, deaths, weddings and no surprises.

“For I know the plans I have for you”…

He knows the end from the beginning and knows what we are going to go through. He also gives us the strength we need to go through those times of both heartache and joy. We need to be reminded daily that God has great plans and that He has it all under His great control. Life may look chaotic and messy, but He has it all in His hands, and knows how it all ends up. We need to allow our hearts and minds to be open to the plans of God, and to let them be completed His way, not our way.

One of the main things I am looking forward to is meeting Him face to face. Allowing myself to submit myself to His plans and purposes between now and that glorious moment are a bit of an issue. I like to know what is going on and don’t like surprises. Letting His perfect plans for my life have their way is difficult as me letting go of that control is really scary. I know it is the best thing for Him to control things and not me, and so I pray He gives me the strength. 

Maybe I need to sit and reflect on how if I have the control, am I really giving my life over to the Creator God? 

Is it like a potter and the clay? 

The clay can’t demand what form it is made into. So why do we try to tell our Creator who we want to be?

My Creator knows the best form I take. He knows what I am to do way into the future. 

I am looking forward to those days. Really. I hope.

    Thanks for stopping by and following Lessons by Heart. This article is very timely for me. We are in a brand new season…have no idea where we are being led, but it includes leaving our church home of 14 years. That’s a little scary!

    I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store this year. May it be one of great blessing and a bountiful harvest for your labor here in Blogtopia!

    In Christ,
    Praising Jesus who makes all things new!

      thats a big step you are taking there, but know Gods hand will be on it especially to the new ground He is leading you to. Many blessings to you and much love in Christ. Let me know how it goes over the next few months as you move on and settle in your new church
