Want to scratch the surface for hope? For me this verse explains it clearly.

“Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” Proverbs 16:3

Are you involving the Lord in the making of your plans?  I admit sometimes I get sailing along and feel like I’ve got everything under control. Then when things mess up He is the first on my call list. How come Lord? When I was being lead to make an occupational change from nurse to florist, I consulted Him. I said, “Lord, are you sure? If this is just going to be a test in humilty, we can skip it and I’ll just keep on with my nursing. I believe You’re leading me, but if I’ve got it wrong please put up some huge stumbling blocks.” Well the transition went smoothly and so I had my answer. Sometimes the answer isn’t so  clear. Sometimes we let our own desires influence us. Sometimes our patience is tested waiting for an answer.Through it all we have to remember He always has our best interest.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
