Yesterday, in-between loads of laundry, I watched a movie called, Priceless. It was about human trafficking. I don’t want to share the whole story with you…you need to watch it, but let’s just say there was a guy trying to make a quick buck, and he unknowingly got entangled in this awful business.
One of the good guys told him he must make a choice. ….Would he do the right thing and expose this information to the authorities? Or would he just ignore it, and go about his own life?
A statement was made in that movie that really had an impact on me…. “The pages of your story are still being written…but the thing is…you are NOT the author. HE has a plan for YOU!”
The Message Bible puts it this way in Jeremiah 29:11…
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”
Another version of the Bible says this, “ For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” -KJV
If your life story has some rough patches…some things you’d rather forget, …remember, God has a plan for YOU! He wants what is best for you!
Instead of being a “co-author” to your life story…let GOD be THE AUTHOR of all things written on your pages! He writes a much better story than we ever could!
