I was reminded today that I am not the only one with an uncertain future. Lord, You have been working on their hearts just as much as mine. One friend just graduated and has been searching for a job. While the waiting is rough, I believe You are just holding her for something greater. I believe You have a plan for her. Another one is about to graduate and is choosing between work and graduate school or both. Lord, I believe You are going to show her the right path. I believe You have a plan for her. Another friend is about to start a beautiful project, but she’s scared. Lord, I believe You have Your hand on her, guiding her. I believe You have a plan for her.
Lord, I believe You have a plan for each one of them. I believe You are moving mountains and creating paths for them. I believe You are working on their hearts. I believe You are opening doors and windows. I believe in Your plan for them. I can’t wait to see what You’re going to do in their lives. You have this wonderfully big plan that we all have a small part in. I can’t wait to see the glorious unfolding.
When Steven Curtis Chapman talks about the song he says: “God is telling an epic, amazing, incredible story. We wont see it fully unfolded until Heaven and then and maybe only then will we really fully see the picture, but will we trust Him and know that His plans and His purposes will be accomplished and He is faithful to complete all of that and to tell a very amazing, incredible, glorious story with our lives.”
So, that is my prayer today. I pray for my friends. I lift them up to you. Lord, I pray for peace in their waiting. I pray for strength and guidance in their decision making process. I pray for courage in their journey. I pray that you lay your arms around them and encourage them. I pray that you protect them and lead them. I pray they listen to your plan and go where you need them to. I pray that you inspire those women. Thank you putting those women in my life. Thank you for letting them inspire me and teach me. Thank you for their encouragement. I hope that they know how thankful I am to have them in my life. Proverbs 27:9 says Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a man’s counsel is sweet to his friend. I pray that while we don’t know what your plan is that we put our faith in you. I pray that we trust you. I pray that we seek you. I pray that we grow with you. I pray that we bring honor and glory to you in all we do. And as always I pray for my family and sorority sisters. I pray for my university. I pray for guidance for our government, church, and school leaders. I pray for protection for our troops. I pray for all of those that need you now and for those that haven’t met you yet. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
