Jeremiah 29:11-13

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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”


When I am faced with a decision, especially one I am struggling with, or one I am uncertain of, or an unpleasant one, I can take a deep breath and remember to give it over to God. He already knows my situation and has a plan for me and how to handle the decision. I only have to lay it at his feet and then listen for his answer. What looks like an unpleasant outcome is already in his hands and he will use it for his purposes, though not always what I see as my purposes.


God, please open my eyes to your will and the plan you already have for every step of my path. Calm my racing heart, help me to give my steps to you and your purposes.     Amen
