Tuesdays IOW ~ God Knows!

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out -plans to take care of you . . .”
Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message)

Jer 29:11-13 (NKJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

This was the theme for our Youth Rally this year.... not only in these verses does God really tell us not to worry that he has everything already planned out for us, His children.... but he also (in verse 13) reassures us that we can seek Him out and we can find Him when we seek him with all of our hearts!

Our youngest will often wake from a nap and start searching for me if he does not see me right away.... seeking me out earnestly with all he has....and the JOY he shows upon finding me ...... that is how it is with us.... we will find God when we search for Him earnestly... He is there waiting to hear us call to Him. And the JOY of finding Him waiting just for us when we need Him! He lets us know that all is going according to His plan. He is always thinking of us and what is best for us! He is in control!

Thanks to Susan at Forever His for hosting this weeks IOW.

Hi Traci,

Thanks for participating today. This was really good.

I love the way you used the example of your child searching for you.

Yes, God is ALWAYS there and He does have a great plan for our lives.
