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.
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
I hope this song and these verses provide the lift that I intended. There is a lot of bad news these days. I honestly believe it is because so many have turned their backs on God. We need only look at the historical texts of the Bible to see that, as the saying goes, “History repeats itself.” God wants to bless us (globally). God wants for us to look to Him for our strength and for His help. The more we try to do on our own, the more we mess things up.
His way brings good things and “brighter days”. Have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂
