faith / encouraging words

I stumbled across this image by Melissa Esplin on Pinterest earlier & thought it really summed up how I've been feeling lately:

by melissa esplin of i still love you

I've been feeling restless lately with close friends and family going through big life changes - new jobs, babies, that sort of thing - while I've been in the same city with the same job.  Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying my job but at the same time I can't help looking toward the future.  I want to enjoy the point that I'm at in my life but I also want to have the courage to move on when it's time.  

After some quiet time & prayer last night, I felt more reassured about where I am right now - I have hopes & dreams about the future but at the end of the day my life is good & God is most definitely grand.  I am ultimately here on this earth to bring Him glory and my own agenda pales in comparison to His plans: "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 

Anyway, I hope these are encouraging words for you too, & thanks for reading this slightly random post :) 


  1. Love you .... always praying for you! The Lord will bless your strong faith and trust in Him!
