Back to the Start

For l know the plans l have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me with all your heart. l will be found by you, declares the Lord and l will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places l have driven you, declares the Lord, and l will bring you back to the place from which l sent you into exile.  Jeremiah 29:11-14

l am no theologian and maybe one day l will be hence what l will explain concerning the above scriptures is up for debate. This is according to my own experience and understanding. 

Back to the start.
 l am on a journey we are all on a journey and the good part is no one has it all figured out. That excites me, giving me comfort but l choose not to settle for that. We all get to a point where we hit brick wall, you have shoveled, hammered, stone blasted the place but the wall keeps standing. What do you do next?

Do you fight, do you run,
Do you wait, do you shout,
Do you cry, do you put it into words,
Do you quit, do you let go,
Do you talk, do you pray,
Do you tell anyone?

l sure do not know how to tell anyone, l don't want anyone to know l don't have it all figured out. BUT
Not telling anyone, keeping my head up "fake it till you make it" is how l got to where l am NOWHERE. l ran and ran and just ran away from my own shadow. So, the wall did not tumble but l have found the way, l am not sure if it is through, over or around it, all l know is l am progressing.

l went back to the start. The game planner the Coach- God. He clearly declares "l know the plans l have for you". l am excited, l do not have to worry about a thing, He has the plan and l am trusting Him, not sure if you would join me too ๐Ÿ˜‰
And they are plans of welfare and not for evil, you don't need to tell me twice......
l mean all you got to do when you wake up is be grateful for the brand new day, ask God what is the plan for the day, l mean why did l not get the memo earlier๐Ÿค”.

There is a catch though and the most easiest of things.
"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me with all your heart".
Whatever, l have idolized and secured my future to- it is goodbye now, l found The One who has been with me and still will be with me. He is my number 1 now๐Ÿ’–.

l still have so many questions though concerning the last past, He sent me away to exile? l mean who does that? The One with the big plan. He wills to do anything until we realize we are nothing without Him.

Back to the start
l am nothing without Him. 
l don't have it all figured out
l am happy to rest at His feet just to hear the plan He has for me.


  1. Good read... ๐Ÿ‘Œ.. going back to basics always works.. problem sometimes is we dont know when to go back

    1. That is true, we don't know when to go back and l am sure as much as l reached my brick wall, everyone reaches that point. It is a matter of letting go of control.
