Are you discouraged today?
Is your to-do list long enough to wrap around the state of Montana five times?
Do you feel slightly depressed that the year is coming to a close and there is so much you hoped to accomplish, only have last year's resolutions still clinging to your mind (just as that extra five pounds is clinging to your thighs)?
Hang in there. And know that God has a plan for you today. You are not behind. In fact, you are right on schedule. His schedule.
God has everything timed to the minute ... no, wait, to the second. Just think how minutely planned things had to work out for baby Moses to be found within the bullrushes. Or for David to show up in order the slay Goliath. Your day--this moment--is not an accident.I'm encouraging you has God has encouraged my heart this morning. I have 2 1/2 books due next month, and according to my flesh, I am SO behind.
But this morning my spirit sings because the creator of the universe--THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE--has planned this moment in history for me. This day is planned for my good and my growth.
And for yours.
