8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the LORD.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Our plans are not always what God has in mind for us, and believe you me, His way and plans are FAR greater than my own! Sometimes it is just hard to remember. We are "I want it now" people.
After I read that I kept going and followed a link to iBelieve Prayer. This one broke me down! It just hit home for me on how dumb I am sometimes and how busy I let myself get. There is nothing more important than spending time with God, yet why do I go through the motions every day and forget to stop and speak to Him.
This is the part that moved me and had me crying
"Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I prayed. I prayed over every single thing that popped in my head. Everything. Even for my puppies. I prayed for someone random who popped into my head that apparently needed some prayer. I prayed for loved ones. I prayed for those who were sick. I prayed for my preacher. I laid my hands on my husband and prayed for him.
Then I stopped. I listened.
“It’s good to hear from you, daughter. I’ve missed you. Let me hold you and comfort you for a little while.”
I began to cry… and pray… and sing praises. It was a really great worship service, I tell ya.
I’ve missed Him.
He’s missed me.
I’m coming back to you, Jesus. Forgive your child for being… dumb?
I love you Jesus. Use me."
God is so amazing, and He loves us so much!
"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
He wants nothing more than to spend time with us and to bless us!
I am so grateful and thankful for women like Megan that allow God to use them! Thank you Megan for this reminder! I truly believe God loves us more than we will even know and He wants wants best for us- Always!
