For I know the plans I have for you

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.”

Monthly Message of Our Lady of Medjugorje, March 25, 2003 “Dear children! Also today I call you to pray for peace. Pray with the heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my coming here. I call you to the way of holiness. Pray, and in prayer you are open to God’s will; in this way, in everything you do, you realize God’s plan in you and through you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

My mother gave me a sign a few years back which reads, “He has great plans for you.” I placed this on my mantle and everyday, I would look at it and ask, “Ok God what are these plans, because I am clueless.” Everytime I would think about it, I would try to figure out what these great plans were. I prayed for God to give me the thoughts and ideas which I needed to move forward. Then I looked at another sign in my house and it read, “Let Go, Let God.” I realized this is exactly what I am not doing. I was trying to figure everything out, instead of letting go. It doesn’t mean you don’t take care of your responsibilities, its just you don’t try to control everything. Live your day, live it honestly, live it joyfully, live it prayfully and God’s plan will happen. — Mary Maddox
