Thankful That He Holds My Future {Gratitude52 Art Journal}

G52Prompt44 Future Plans

I am plugging along, determined to finish the 52 weeks of Gratitude Journal art. This is Prompt #44/52, so I think I can make it. It is more challenging to create something every single week in a year, following the challenge “prompts,” than I thought it would be. Prompt #44 is to illustrate gratitude for “Future Plans.”

In this season of our lives, my husband and I try to stay flexible in planning the future. We talk a lot about where we want to be, where we want to go, how we want to get there, and so forth. But we want to stay open so that we can jump on it, if we think of something new and different than we had ever considered in all of our discussions. That’s one advantage of being retired and healthy (thank you, Lord)!

The one thing we DO know, and that never wavers, as we think about our Future Plans, is this:

We know that God knows the plans HE has for us.

And we know that those plans are good.

Those plans are awesome.

Those plans will make us prosper.

Those plans are to bring us hope.

Those plans will bring us a real FUTURE.

Hallelujah and Amen!

I've been enjoying your journaling for years; although I don't make my voice (or words, as the case may be) heard very often, and I'm sorry for that. The future is so mysterious; yet with God in control, we know that all is well and we WILL prosper! I love this post. Thank you.

Ang, thank you so very much for commenting! It is so encouraging to me to realize that there are people out there who are enjoying my posts, even though I don't know about it! I'm glad you love this post about God's being in control! Thank you again!
