"'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. 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 seek me with all your heart.'" - Jeremiah 29:11-13
God doesn't want us to live in the negative parts of our pasts. He wants us to live in the present because the present is a wonderful gift to us and it is full of all the promises that God has for us each new day.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for this lovely reminder to anticipate with joyful expectation the new things you have for me - in this moment and the coming days and years. Thank you for making a way for me as I journey with you into the positive possibilities of life.
Reflection: How does your life improve whenever you wake up and thank the Lord for each new day?
