I have learned to input my name in many of these verses, so I can personally feel the connection of Him talking to me.
For these words are written for each of us. Each for the special place you are given in His heart. I know He loves me and I wish I could always trust Him and not doubt. To truly trust the plans He has laid out for me. The past week, I have been witness to Gods amazing glory. As I have knelt on the floor in complete surrender, I stand up new. Things I have prayed so long for, but never truly let go of, I did..and then He showed me what He had in store for me. I have to say, there have been many tears shed the last few days, as I hear His words wrap around my heart. To remind me He wants to give us all we desire and more. We just have to wait. Its been years for me, but now, I see why. I see that I needed to be where I am now with my relationship with Him. That I needed to change my direction of prayer, from my will, to thy will.
And as I read the words yesterday from someone special that God has placed in my life, I felt tears start trickling down my face. I laughed at my self, sitting back wondering what had come over me. Even now, the words still cause tears to come. Its been a very long journey for me, my friends. My past is very ugly..but my Redeemer is very GREAT. As I sit here thinking about that young girl curled up in a ball with no where to go, that had reached rock bottom..the drug addiction had taken everything, I am amazed of the glory God has given me. The story He has blessed me with. But, even then, like Paul, we can till become burdened with our past. Their words to me were, "I dont care about your past."
To have those words spoken to someone like me is beyond priceless. It has shined to me the promises my Lord has in store for me. To bring people like this into my life to lift me up, to show Christs love even more through their words to me. To me, their words, were just like my Lords words. For He loves me for who I am. He does not care about my past...so of course, He is going to make sure who He brings into my life will be the same way. Who will understand and love me for me..So Jeremiah 29:11 is extra special to me this morning. I now see a glimmer of what the plans are and I am in awe of my Fathers love for me. So...have faith,my friends, for He has such wondrous plans for not just me, but you also. Put your name in that verse as I have done. Hold His promises close to your heart.
