Rando Thoughts for Lent

Print by dazeychic

Do you ever have one of those days where you just sit and think what's going to happen with the rest of your life? If you are on the right path, if the things that are getting under your skin going to take a turn for the better or worse, or do you ever ponder if you waited too late to seize opportunities?

Yep, I've been having one of those days. And ironically it began during Lent.

And while I haven't been all "oh whoa is me" to anyone, or finding ways to bring up my thoughts with every day conversations, I have been laying my heavy load on a person I know who is ultimately there for me and only wishes the best in my future. 

The big man upstairs knows me best. I mean, He did create each and every one of us to fulfill what he ultimately knows what we will succeed in. Right now, it's just taking longer for Him to let me know his plan for me.

That's why I am thankful for prayer. Prayer is like venting to your best friend, without the feeling of gossiping. Prayer is saying what's on your mind at that very moment. Prayer is good, and I do it a lot for various different things. 

And since I'm not exactly giving up anything for Lent, I thought I would instead enrich my soul with reading a Bible verse every day and really using the words to grow closer to God. (By the way, thank you Love, Belle for putting the idea on twitter! :) 

To start things off, here is a verse from 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."
