Thankful Thursday: God's Plan

Perhaps, one of the things that I should be thankful for is the fact that I am still alive today and that I can still think logically and come up writing this post... 
This week isn't really as perfect as I thought it would be. But all that starts well should ends well.

I am so preoccupied with the thoughts of earning more by doing online jobs like article writing and with the help of some co-blogger friends I was able to get opportunities from Direct Advertisers. But then, reality bites, everything is indefinite. And I realize I should not fully rely on it. It has been my prayer every now and then that God will bless us abundantly... that there will be financial breakthrough for me and my hubby... That's it. My mind is so engrossed with finding part-time jobs.

Then the truth occurs to me. I made it a point to present such request to God yet I deliberately do it on my own, unable to wait for His go signal. I decided on my own, work on my own, forgetting the faithfulness of God... I prayed yet I did it my way. So selfish, so impatient- that's me.

God's Promise:

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yes, indeed, I kept on claiming this Words over and over again. In fact, I included this on the header of this blog to remind myself always. But sometimes, anxiety overwhelms me especially now that my due date to give birth is approaching and I can't help it but worry a lot... But still, at the back of my mind, I am holding on to God's promises... His plans for me are not finished yet... HE still have a lot in store for me. I should learn to wait. I should hold on to my faith. I should not allow anxieties to shake me nor threat me with the bad thoughts that isn't happening yet and never will... I may be unfaithful, but God will forever remain faithful on his Words and promises for me...
Thank you Lord.
