OK, I give up.  What’s the plan?  It’s so easy to get discouraged when looking at what lies ahead, because of the unknown.  If only everything was spelled out in simple language.  For centuries people have wanted to know what their future held.  Even in ancient days, they looked to the stars, soothsayers or prophets for answers.

When Jeremiah penned the words to those who had been exiled from Jerusalem to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar God was actually laying out the plan for them.  These folks were undoubtedly unsure about their future, but were told to accept their captivity and try to restore their numbers and bring prosperity to the land of their enemies.  By doing so, they would also prosper.   He wasn’t simply handing them an insurance policy for a good life – He was demonstrating how to accomplish it.

God wants us to plan for the future.  He wants us to be wise in our decision making.  He gives us tools whereby we can achieve our goals. He gives us instructions on how to live, cope, share, trust, and believe in Him and what He has planned for us.

When we look for answers in all the wrong places, we’re opening the door to failure.  The only place to find truth is in God’s Word, the Bible.  God knows what lies ahead, because He’s already got it mapped out.  He knows every obstacle  we’ll encounter.  He realizes every goal we’ll meet.  He’s our counselor in times of decision – our benefactor in time of need – our Redeemer in times of hopelessness – our Prophet, Priest and King.

Even into our old age, He is with us and is making His plans known to us.  Be confident that His plan is perfectly designed exclusively for you.







As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
