Fighting for Your Future

 

When I hear the word “Future,” the first thing that runs through my mind is the classic Scripture verse…

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a FUTURE.”

On top of such an incredible promise like that, our Heavenly Father also loves to give us specific direction concerning our lives and destinies. Perhaps you’ve had a prophetic word about a spectacular future that He’s laid out for you. Or perhaps He’s spoken purpose and destiny to you through dreams and visions.

Either way, God has incredible plans for your future!

And what a terror at the same time.

Oh my goodness, people are going to read this? What will they say? What will they think?

Do you remember those nightmares as a child, just before a big presentation, when you dream that “It’s Showtime!” and you show up without pants?

Haha. Yeah, that’s me.

It’s an incredibly vulnerable thing to share your passion with other people. Art is vulnerable. Writing is vulnerable.

Will I be enough to make this beautiful?

Will I be enough to make this powerful?

Will I be enough?

And then the words of this simple Scripture flood my mind and my heart to bring comfort and calm,

courage and confidence.    Read more
