Jeremiah 29:11, life changes


As 2015 starts, I can’t help but wonder if this will be the year that something extraordinary happens to me. Is this the year God had in mind for me when I read Jeremiah 29:11?

I’m 31 years old and I live at home with my mother. Don’t get me wrong. I adore my mother but this is not how I pictured my life post college. I saw myself living on my own, with a stable FULL TIME job and perhaps even in a serious relationship.

Will this be the year that everything changes?

My relationship with God had its ups and downs in 2014. Things in 2015 are going to be a lot different. I am determined to make Him first in my life and am eager to learn more about Him as I dig deeper into my Bible.

I also have a tendency to dwell on the negative rather than the positive things in life. That’s going to change this year.

Another thing that’s going to change is my blogging frequency. I have a bad habit of starting something and then not finishing. I think my problem is that when I can’t get out what I want to say I just scrap the entry and start another task. I get distracted way too easily.

God has great plans for me. I am going to daily remind myself of Jeremiah 29:11 and realize that no matter the circumstance God is with me and His plans for me are going to be awesome.

Now if I could just exert some patience while things fall into place……
