Act II

20 02 2013

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

IMG_0701Watching a play production, the producers divide the story line into different “Acts” or segments. Each one may have its own unique stage setting, characters and theme for the story that is unfolding in front of the audience. We may go through similar phases in our lives, where each segment helps to advance our personal story to the next phase. As God’s children, we can be thankful along the way for our Father’s promises to us. First, we can be thankful that God does indeed have a plan. We are not a meaningless story line without purpose. We may not know how each individual phase in our lives fits all together but God knows and we can put our trust in Him. His plan and purpose come together into a beautiful story once we put our lives in His hands. I am also thankful for the cues that He provides that allows us to move to the next phase. It is a time of trusting, faith and courage and also anticipation of what the Lord has in store for us in the next Act.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Ephesians 3:20 NLT
