Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other – He Knows

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other.”

Write a six-word story about what you think the future holds for you, and then expand on it in a post.

He knows His plan for me

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

My future was ordained by the Lord before I was knit in my mother’s womb. It is for good and not evil. He has given me a future although it hasn’t fully unfolded before me. Along with the future came hope. That hope is what I hold on to when I can’t see anything resembling a future. One thing I have to remind myself of is what I see as my future might not look like the future the Lord as put together for me.

For that reason I keep in constant contact with Him through looking and listening and being quite so I can hear the still small voice that’s booming loud and clear.

Thankful for My Exodus

I’m not the same person I was four years ago when I made my exodus from Ohio to Texas. When I arrived in Texas I was a hot mess and I didn’t realize it. The fact is I was a hot mess in Ohio before I left but it wasn’t easy to detect.

I’m thankful that today, 3 years 11 months later I’m a new person from the inside out. I’ve been delivered from many issues that have haunted me for a long time. Not only did I overcome the issues but also lost weight. Those issues would have hindered me from moving into my purpose and destiny. I’m liking who I have become. All this has happened by the gentle hand of God.

Can you look at your life and see anything you’ve been delivered from? Has your life changed as a result of the deliverance?
