Hope and Encouragement

Not sure why, or who this is for, but felt to put a few words of encouragement out tonight.  Life can get tiring.  It can get overwhelming.  It can get down right exhausting.  But God.  God has a perfect plan for your life.  Yeah, we've all heard that before, right?  Well, He does.  Problem is most of us decided at some time in our life that we had a better way to do things and it has caused His path for us to veer to the right or left at times.  If we keep our eyes on Him, He will always lead us back to Him and onto the right path.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Jer 29:11-12  NKJV

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.14 I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jer 29:12-14   NKJV

We must actively seek Him to find Him.  It is a choice we must make.  I would encourage you to make that choice.  When all seems lost and we just can't get out from under everything, the Lord says to lean on Him.  Cast our cares on Him.  Allow Him to fight our battles and carry us on wings like eagles. 
Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.  Ps 55:22   NKJV

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.   Matthew 11:29   NKJV
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  Matthew 11:30   NKJV

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 
8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.  1 Peter 5:6-11 NIV

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isa 40:31  NIV

Praying and believing you will be filled with hope today.
