The One who knows the plans

"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."
-Jeremiah 29:11

This verse has been really encouraging to me lately. In many ways and places.
Christian Art Gifts: These journals are my favorite because each page has a verse on it. Thank you Michelle for giving me this journal!
I'm the type of person who likes to have plans. I usually like to know what I'll be doing today, tomorrow, or even next week. But God doesn't always work like that. He has His own time schedule. And He does what's best for me too. I'm the one who is sometimes impatient. 

So when I don't understand which direction I'm headed, it's challenging. I have to remind myself that
even when I may not see what's ahead of me very clearly, I do know the One who sees everything.

"This is what the LORD says— 
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: 
“I am the LORD your God, 
who teaches you what is best for you, 
who directs you in the way you should go."
-Isaiah 48:17
So I drink tea while I wait on God's timing.  I need to wait for God to make His plans happen.

  1. Hi Claire,

    I love reading your blog and have commented before. We also follow each other on Pinterest :) A few years ago, I created an online magazine for missionary teen girls and have been running it and the magazine's blog by myself since then. Recently, I've been really wanting to find someone to help me write for the blog and you were the first person I thought of since you're such a good photographer and writer. I wanted to e-mail you about this, but couldn't find a way to contact you besides commenting. E-mail me at notofthisworld.r2 [at] gmail [dot] com if you're at all interested in doing that!


Thanks for stopping by! Your comments make my day! If you want to ask me any question, or need to contact me, write me at:
