I’m sitting here in my closet in tears thinking about where I am in this present moment in life. The many blessings and opportunities that are falling down upon me like manna from heaven. And like manna, all I have to do reach up and grab it. You see my present was once the future that I worried about, stressed over, lost sleep over, was an anxious mess over, cried about, and spoke out of my mouth I didn’t want. Little did I know, until I reached my future, everything about it was good. Our present circumstances do blind us from the future that is planned for us. I am a witness that God has a future for us that is good! There is freedom in not worrying about what will happen tomorrow, one year from now, five years from now, etc. But with God…just sit back and watch him perform. Relax and enjoy the journey. Now I say, Come on future! I surrender to everything you have for me because I know my future is in His hands.
“For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and hope”. Jeremiah 29:11 (New American Standard Bible)
