Something dawned on me this week. It is profound. I knew this with my head, but I didn't know it in my heart. When it hit me, it really hit me.
Jesus has a plan.
For me, for my life. A plan that makes my plan look lame. For a while now, I have been praying for what I thought was best. I have been praying for my timing. In my prayers, I laid it all out for God, 'cause He might need my help, ya know.
Um, wrong. Seriously, I really thought He might need me to help Him along. I was getting dressed the other day, and I thought, "WAIT! He doesn't need me. He doesn't need me to explain to Him how it all needs to play out." I heard something this weekend that literally changed my life...
God doesn't need me...He wants me.
Think about that for a minute. If I could imagine my best case scenario, the perfect story... it would still not be as great as what Jesus has for me. This completely changes my perspective. The more I thought about it, the more I felt Him speaking to me.
He is enough.
If none of my "plans" ever work out the way I hope, He is enough. He alone. Nothing else matters. One day, this life will be over. One day I will find myself standing, actually kneeling, at my sweet Jesus' feet. I will be face to face with my Savior. That's what matters. When I begin to focus on eternity and not the here and now, that is when I find complete Peace.
Funny how different things are when you truly focus on Him. Everything in the background fades away. Every worry. Every heartache. Every loss. Everything.
I don't ever want to take my eyes off of Him.
