Several years back a friend from the past had shared this verse with me…..Jeremiah 29:11.
We were discussing life passions, a topic I LOVE to discuss and she shared it at a time when things were going “well” for me.
As the years passed I would reflect on that verse from time to time and our conversation we had when she shared it. I of course had no idea that this particular verse would become a great source of comfort for me during some more challenging times in my career and life. But the steadfast truth remained….the Lord knew the plans that He had for me.
The Lord’s plans really didn’t follow the vision I had for my future but they were the best plans for me and I am truly thankful for where I am right now. I encourage you to be a source of encouragement to others and don’t be afraid to share what is on your heart. You never know what comfort those words will bring to someone….maybe not that particular day but in the future.
I still have the piece of paper that she wrote the verse down on. A plain yellow sticky note. Every time I look at it I say a prayer for my friend and am thankful for her boldness in sharing.
What will you do to encourage someone today?
Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa
