crossJer. 29:11 “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.”

You may not know what the future holds for you, but the Lord does. He knows all that lies ahead of you, both the good and the bad. He knows your ups and downs. There is nothing that you will face in life that He doesn’t already know about and He is preparing you today for what lies ahead.

What you need for your future the Lord knows and lovingly is providing you with it today. You may not see it or understand it, but be assured that the Lord is taking care of you. He lovingly is equipping you for your good and He will be glorified because of it. Do not take lightly what the Lord is doing in your life today, because you need it for all of your tomorrows.

Learn well what the Lord is showing you about Him and life. Search the Scriptures daily so you will learn all that you need for today and your future. Observe what is happening in your life so that you can learn important spiritual lessons from it. Learn from others who have walked the path you are on so that you can handle what lies ahead of you.

The plans the Lord has in store for you are all good. He does not let you go through anything in life that is not good for you. Trust in God’s goodness and do not let Satan cause you to doubt it. Nothing that happens in the life of the godly is bad if we but have eyes to see the goodness of God. Things may be difficult for us to go through, but we can go through them victoriously for Christ gives us the means and strength to do it.

Keep your eyes focused on the truth of God’s love and goodness and your future will be bright, full of hope and the peace of God will steady you each step you take. The Lord plans on walking with you each step you take until He gets you home to heaven. Trust God; He will not let you down or disappoint you as you boldly step into your future.

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
