Look Up

Driving home this morning from dropping the Mister off at work (we still only have one car down here), and I was taking a route home that I’ve taken many times before, but today something was different. I don’t know if it was because the clouds seem lower and darker from a potential storm today, or maybe it’s because I spent an hour outside yesterday taking in the sites and sounds of a local park and was able to calm my heart and commune with God. I noticed that when I looked up from the road and immediate path in front of me, I saw more of the city that’s now my home than I have before.

You might be thinking, ‘yea, so what?’, but for me it made me realize that frequently I only look at what’s immediately ahead of me. My next task, the next time I need to feed our son, the next show that is on and of interest to me. I honestly don’t often stop and look ahead, at what’s past the next immediate thing.

I know God has plans for me. He tells me plainly in Jeremiah 29:11[HCSB]:

For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

I need to look up and notice that He’s in control and He’s got plans for me to achieve in the future. I need to not be completely engrossed in current worries and concerns. As I said before, I need to Let Go, Let God and look up from my busy days and know that God has plans for me; as a wife, a mother, a daughter and friend, that I don’t even know what those are or when they’ll come about, but He does and that’s good enough for me.
