I love it when I come up with ideas that throw Beth for a loop. I wanted to do this series because I’m working on my attitude. I’m determined to live a life of gratitude. One of the things I find myself most grateful for is the knowledge that there is no situation that God doesn’t have me covered. This brought me to the teachings of the Beatitudes.
During some recent difficulties, I found myself faced with a choice: either I believe God’s plans for me are good…or NOT. Either I believe it, or I don’t.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. – Romans 8:28
So, this is the next few weeks of our collaboration. My hope is that you’ll cling to the promises of Jesus and know that His blessings cover every circumstance.
And know His plans for you are good.
11For 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. 12Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14“I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.””
