Anything is Possible

“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.” Jer. 29:11

Recently, I have spent a lot of time at the high school Libby will attend next year. The excitement is in the air. I get chills walking through the breezeways. These students have their whole lives in front of them–anything is possible. As we get older, we often forget that feeling, burdened by our daily lives.  Sometimes we need a reminder that God wants to prosper us all, no matter how old we are, no matter how far off His path we have roamed.

We have hope when we turn to God for direction. A future following His plan might have interesting twists and turns, but He is always there cheering us on when we need it, providing the right tools, and preparing us to do his work.

This week lets take a moment to look through the eyes of a teenager and see the opportunities God has provided and remember the way He blesses each of our days.

What new adventure are you considering? How are you stepping out in faith?

    This was exactly the verse I needed for a dear friend. While different in context to your post, I’m continually amazed at how God uses you in my life. Love you!

  • If you only knew, the only reason I used that verse was because I saw it on a t.v. show I was watching because I was stuck on the couch, recovering from the stomach bug. God truly works all things for good.

    I just recently saw an old college pic a friend posted of me on FB and thought how wide open the world was for me. I compared it to how I sometimes view life now and asked that very question, “What happened and what is still possible as I creep toward 50?YIkes!”
    Thank you for reminding me to tap into my inner teenage spirit and take hold again of God’s plan that does not have age requirements or an expiration date as long as I breathe life.

  • Amen, Sister. Cheering and praying you on in your new adventure.
