(Jeremiah 29:11) "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."

A clip from a Heavens Attic (A Christian Book Store in my home town) advertisement caught my eye this morning. I started reading in the middle of the phrase. A man was honoring his mom. It said, "She couldn't understand or appreciate them." Wow, I thought, how could this guy be honoring his mom? He's pretty much saying she doesn't understand him. I hope she isn't still alive or she's going to really be hurt. And then at the top of the phrase it talks about Legacy. Now I really am confused.

I think we do this frequently with our Abba. We pick out parts of the plan God has for our life and try to make heads or tails of it. And when it doesn't make sense, we scratch our heads, pitch a few temper tantrums and then pick and choose our own understanding of it's true meaning. Only when we are utterly confused from living out of our own resources, do we cry out, "Papa, help, this makes no sense to me."

I finally went on to read the rest of the phrase. "My mom helped me to understand that I should strive to succeed, but that failure was part of the journey. She supported my dreams when she couldn't understand or appreciate them."-- Jeff Lucas. Ohhhhh, I get it now. Now it makes sense. I should have read on to begin with.

Ok, Papa. My bad. I do this often with You. I jump ahead and forget to wait on the whole big picture. I forget to wait on Your plans. Your plans to prosper me and not hurt me.

Today, let me ride on Your wings and see all that You see..


1 little hearts from you...:
