I can rest in that.
Sometimes, I feel like my life is on hold and it is hard to continue to do the things I need to do. Sometimes, I wish there really was a fairy godmother who would swoosh down and make things right for me with her magic wand. Sometimes, I lack motivation and drive. Sometimes, I just don't care. Sometimes, I feel lost. Sometimes, I just need to rest. Sometimes, I just need to rest in Him.
BUT, there is someone who cares and someone who knows exactly what is going to happen next in my life. You see, I am in a situation that is hard to understand sometimes. I want this unemployment situation of my husband's to just be resolved already! I know that I should feel peace because I know that God already had this situation planned. I don't understand that, but I can rest in the truth that He does.
Psalm 33:11 says The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.
I know His plan is to mold me and to make me like Him. I am changing even when I feel like I am stuck. He is changing me and molding me into His image. His heart is great.
One of my favorite bible verses is this: 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.
I have this verse posted in several places in my home. It is a constant reminder to me that everything is in my loving God's hands. Even when I am stuck, not motivated, wallowing in pity and despair, when I just feel like giving up, I can trust in my Lord because He loves me and He holds the plans to my future. He loves me! I can rest in that.
