A New Venture

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

For the last two years I have lived my life differently: each day begins anew in the Lord.  The past is left behind – its successes and failures released.  The future is left to the Lord, His destiny to be revealed in the proper time.  And so my focus becomes today.  I concentrate upon the here and now.  God has brought me to a place in my life where I can do nothing more than place my trust in Him for everything.  Every decision, every plan, every moment is His.  I seek His will in everything I do and say.  Some may find this lifestyle too simple or too limiting.  However, for those people who have sought the face of the Lord understand that true freedom only comes from fully submitting our lives to God.

And so I look forward with eager anticipation.  I know that the greatest days of my life still lie before me, and I will celebrate each of them as they come – one day at a time.
