Wherever you go, there He is...

Today was rough- I'm still sipping tea in the hopes of alleviating my headache... I left the house stressed, late and just generally frazzled. My jeep's gas gauge was buried and I still had to drive to my other office out of town.


But you know what's funny?

The Beatles.

yes. that's right. You were probably expecting something deep and spiritual... nope- not from here you're not getting none of that.

My sister lent me her iPod (I really REALLY need to get my own... someday)

And as I drove- I just sank into the music.

And when I got to my office, and I had a spare moment to journal- as I was letting my frustrations flow with the ink of my pen onto the page- I noticed the verse at the bottom.

Jeremiah 29:11-12.

Just so you know, God haunts me with that verse. It just keeps popping up in my life- and I've learned that whenever i see it, it is not an accident or coincidence- God is up to something... (as usual)

so there it was: 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.

The journal was probably printed in the 90's... and I don't usually bring my journal into work, either. But there God was. It's comforting to think that wherever we're going in life, God is already there- with a plan and open arms, ready to help us out with exactly what we need most. Remember that. And trust Him- especially when He's mischievous...
