God has a Plan

Last year at Bethel, I had a verse pinned on my desk with words highlighted in different colors to draw my eye. It gave me hope through the year and it reassured me that Bethel is where I should be. I still often have doubts, but I am happier than ever that I chose Bethel last year and that I'm going back in just a few short weeks.

Even with the thought of a new year approaching--and the anxiety that comes with it, I can be encouraged that God holds the world in His hands and He has a plan no matter what happens. I often worry about the not-so-distant future: what will I do when I get my degree? what if God has a different plan than I do? what if I fall away from God? what if...what if?

In those times, it is important to run to Scripture and devour it. (This is the time where I need to take my own advice.) May this post be a pinprick of light in whatever darkness you may be sludging through:

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."
