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."

Just a reminder to myself (and to you!) that God is sovereign and in control ALWAYS!  His plans are the highest and best, even though it may be confusing or seem scary!  A friend recently reminded me of the story in Daniel chapter 3...Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had to first jump into the fiery furnace before God showed up...but when he did show up it was to his great glory!  Sometimes giving the most glory to God requires us to jump in head first and TRUST him that he'll be waiting for us when we get there!

Then Nebuchadnezzar said, "Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!" -Daniel 3:28
