One of My Favorite Bible Verses: “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 a hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
This is an area I struggle with, because I always want to help Him with the plans for my life. But He always finds a way to remind me His plans are far better than what I could ever have planned for myself. I just have to be patient and wait on His timing and not my own.
