Your days are in His hands

Psalm 138:8a, 139:16b
The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me...
...All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.

What a promise! Isn't it amazing to think that God has each and every one of our days planned out? Before we wake up, He knows exactly what is going to happen that day (and every day!).

This morning I was so excited to get started with my day and just.... happy! I realized the reason that I was so full of joy was because I was simply excited to see what this day held. I knew that God had a plan for each minute and I couldn't wait to find out what those plans were!

While I'm going to sleep at night, I love to reflect on my day. The things that I learned, the conversations that were had, what I got done... God's blessings on each and every day are unmistakable if you take the time to look for them.

I don't know if this makes any sense.... it's just what was running through my head at the moment!

Remember that God not only has a plan for your days... but an ultimate plan of how you will glorify Him with your entire life!

In Christ,

oh! I just found a verse that goes along the lines of this.
Psalm 31:14-15
But I trust in you, O LORD;
I say, "You are my God."
My times are in your hands...

I love that phrase - "My times are in your hands."
