“For thus says the Lord, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’ ~Jeremiah 29:10-14 

My head knows it but it takes a while for my heart to catch up. I think it’s a part of the process of letting Him purify my motives and teach me how to seek Him with all of my heart. 

Where I am is where I should be. He has big plans for me. I just need to be a faithful steward of what I’m given right now

It’s coming before Him each day with open hands and radical trust. It’s trading my dreams, desires, and plans for something much bigger. It’s accepting grace and living in that freedom from one moment to the next.
