Day 8 - 1104
I kindle the weak embers
That used to be fiery and warm
I breathe air to keep you glowing
For my heart depends on your fire
Like a moth attracted to the light
Even if my end is certain
I will never leave
For my eyes will find wanting,
Searching for your flare
And like a lost sailor,
I can only find my way home
Through the beckoning glow
From the lighthouse by the sea
I noticed this looks vividly similar to Salinger’s Catcher In The Rye, which is one of my favorite and most loved books. Two birds in one stone, I guess. :)
We are on day 8!
” 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, NIV).
No matter what may be happening today, God has good things in store for your future! It may not be easy to see now, but God has already lined up a new beginning, new friendships and new opportunities for you.
Maybe you’ve experienced some setbacks, but don’t make the mistake of expecting the same for your future. Instead, accept God’s good plan for your life by declaring His truth. As believers, our attitude should be, “Even though the economy is down, I’m not worried. I know God is going before me, and He has promised He will make rivers in the desert.” Or, “The medical report may not look good, but I have another report that says God is restoring health unto me. I believe God has already released healing, health and victory in my future.” Or, you may have a child who is not on the right course. In the natural, it seems impossible. But our report should be, “I know God can do the impossible!”
Today, be encouraged and don’t give up on your tomorrows. Accept the good plan God has for you—a plan filled with hope, purpose, blessing and increase in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for giving me hope and a future. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for choosing me. Thank You for delighting in me. I invite You to renew my heart and mind to the good plans You have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
