One Thousand Gifts:: Take Eleven

Before I start (and this is something I am thankful for :), you know how I just posted this?

As I am trying to figure out what my plans are for this summer, I sometimes wish God would tell me what I should do via neon billboards. Saying "Do this" or "Don't do this" or "This would be a great thing for you" or "This would be a really bad decision." Alas, He has not chosen to work in that way :)
These verses comfort me greatly when I am feeling stressed about plans for the future.
Jeremiah 33:3: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.
Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Psalm 139:16: Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
I am so thankful that God is SOVEREIGN. And His plans are much much better than mine!

... God really made it clear today. :) He swung a door wide open! I am so so thankful! Y'all, God is SO GOOD! All the time! And He will provide! Whoo hoo!
