don't worry, be happy

Sometimes things don't go the way we want them to. Sometimes our plans get ruined and we can't do anything about it. Sometimes we've been waiting for something for so long only to find out we weren't going to get it after all. Sometimes things just do go the way we plan them to and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. 

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.. "
Jeremiah 1:5

I have always been worried of what the future held for me. Well not too worried but I would think about it once in a while. 

Then, I came across this verse again. It is a familiar verse to me but it was a lovely reminder. It reminded me that I should not be worried about anything, at all. 

The verse talks about how God knows us more than we even know our own selves. Thinking about this makes me realize that since he knows us wholly, shouldn't we trust him when it comes to the plans he has for us?

"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."
Jeremiah 29:11
