Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this…
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.”
But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.
I listen in you and to you. I listen to hear your heart surrender to My will. Will you believe in my goodness to you when you are experiencing pain and loss? Can you see beyond what you desire to the bigger picture of My desire for you? My desire for you is great. Do not allow the pain in your life to break your faith in My plans for you.
Be a light in dark places to those who hurt. Carry that gift from Me. Welcome others with My joy at seeing them. They are not numbers passing by, but individuals of value who count. Will you count yourself as one who counts and deserves to be counted, and not discounted? Will you value who I value, or will you devalue yourself, disbelieving that I could value you?
