Jeremiah 29: 11-13

"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 a hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

This scripture is one I read over and over. It has brought me through a lot of struggles I've had in my life. How many times do we second guess that God has our best interest at heart. He knows every desire of our hearts because HE places them there. Our job is to allow him full control in every area not just ones we pick for him.

I remember saying I would never be a nurse..I saw what my mother had to endure and I absolutely did not want to go through that. But God had a different plan. I look back at every step I had to face and know now that God had it all mapped out. Every job I've had, training, education, etc.. has lead me to where I am right now. In the field that I love..Even though I complained half the time about struggles i endured, God still new best and always will and continued to have my best interest at heart. He can turn any situation into something far better than we could fathom with our human minds.

  1. When Josh was in the ICU my friend brought me a birthday card and this verse was written in it. I cries when I read it. It made me feel like God was going to bring us through the tragedy. To this day it is still one of my favorites.
