“A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9, HCSB)
If God could write you a letter on seeing you the way He does I think it would go something like this.
I see you. I see how hard you work to make things happen. I see your efforts and your heart. I know how hard it is when all your best laid plans and dreams don’t go as planned. I hear your prayers, my child. It breaks my heart too when dreams (promotion, pregnancy, job, book deal, etc) don’t work out. I know you don’t understand.
Trust me when I tell you, one day you will be able to look back and know in your heart that the plans I have for you are good even though things haven’t work out as you planned. I am the same God who set the stars in the sky, the planets in motion, and a time for every good purpose and plan for your life.
I haven’t forgotten you. I love you. (<===Click To Tweet)
I never promised a life of ease-and this certainly goes for chasing those dreams as well. Life will be a series of ebbs and flows. All the hard times, all the failures, and all the good times will be used for My ultimate plan in your life.
You see, nothing that has happened will be wasted. I know you sometimes feel like I’m not there. But child, I’m always here. Sometimes a Father has to stand back and watch their child struggle in order to find their wings and fly.
I am your biggest cheerleader, I want you to do well and succeed.
I may be quiet at times but I promise I’m still here. Those moments when you wonder where I am and if I even care that your dreams are dying are the times I’m going before you to make your paths straight (Isaiah 45:2). I’m collecting every tear you cry and I’m making a way even though you don’t see it. I am opening and shutting doors because I love you that much.
Don’t be so hard on yourself when things don’t work out. Turn to me and let me comfort you. As long as you stay close to me my love and peace will permeate your soul and everything will be okay. Don’t take your eyes off of me. I am the only one whom truly sees what you are feeling. I know you my love. You can’t hide from me.
Keep by my side, even more than you realizing your dreams I want you to grow closer with Me. When you do this you will grow more and more into the person I created you to be. You will come to a place where even if your dream never comes true you will be content. Because the joy of Me in your life will be greater than any dream. (<=== Click to Tweet)
You are my beautiful wonderful child. Don’t ever forget that.
Your Father in Heaven-God
