cup of dreams

Image hosting by TinyPic


We "find life" not in seeking it but in coming into a proper alignment with God and his plan for us. As you "lose your life," you find it again. This "life" Jesus speaks of not only includes life after death, but also "life during life." Jesus tells us that he came to "give life in all its fullness" (John 10:10). You should never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. God's plan for you is good. In fact, it is better than any plan you may have for yourself.

- Greg Laurie from Knowing Jesus Personally, New Living Testament.

Hmmm, that's really good--
I love it that God's plans for us are better than our own--even though it may take a few years to actually understand that--and some I suppose we won't understand until heaven!
Sunday blessings!

I've always believed in the unknown future. It drives The Missus nuts. She thinks it's luck, I think it's God.

i know in my head that this true, but it is still so hard to let go of my plans...my dreams.

tina ... i know what you mean ... we just need to wrap our hearts around the idea that God truly does want the best for us ... so that we can become more Christlike in everything ... (hugs)

JB ... i have really been enjoying Greg Laurie's teaching ... i have read a number of his books, and have been blessed ... the Lord has so many good teachers out there for us! and i agree - somethings we won't understand until heaven!

fred ... well i'll have to vote with you on that unknown future! if it was luck, then it would be like building a house throwing the pick up sticks in the air, saying voila - didn't that turn out well? blessings!
