My favorite song is “Because He Lives”. It is the sort of song that encourages faith when you are feeling a bit faithless – and puts a sense of determination behind it. When I sing that song it affirms everything I believe about faith, hope and yes, love.
It seems only right that on this Monday morning we should begin the week with a renewed sense of purpose.
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
Life seems to go smoother with this kind of reassurance from the LORD. He knows the future and I’ll take that a step further – He’s already waiting down the road. No, I don’t know how He does that – that’s why He’s God and I’m not.
One thing is for certain. I always want to be found smack dab in the center of God’s Will for my life. Nothing less is acceptable. Being what He wants me to be and doing what He wants me to do is top priority.
Sometimes I am tempted to say I’m not anyone’s child anymore, but that’s a lie from the pit. I am God’s kid and so thankful for the love of my heavenly Father. He loves perfectly and I’m so blessed in my life. I look forward to living with Him for eternity when this life is over.
Jesus keeps me singing and smiling! 🙂
