Sunday Strength:Isaiah 55:8-9

Isaiah 55:8-9 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord, “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” 

Happy Sunday! 

I’ve been trying to think of a story to tell you or something to catch your attention but the only thing I can really think to say in this post is how my heart is completly clinging to this verse. 

Over the past few weeks God has really been working in me to teach me that we all have a different plan. I’ve learned that I can’t look around and compare my plan to someone else’s plan. I can’t put my life side by side to another’s. I can’t question why me or why them. I can’t do this because my God has a plan for my life that he designed specifically for me and how sad must I make him when I wish for another plan instead of being thankful for the one he created for me.

This verse brings so much truth to my soul. Although in my heart I know His ways are better than my ways and in the end His plan will always be the right choice it isn’t always easy. I may not always understand His way and quite honestly sometimes my heart may hurt by this plan but the one thing I know is that with Jesus I can put one foot in front of the other and be given the strength that I need and begin to trust and understand his perfect plan for my life. 

I recently read a quote that said “One size does not fit all, but one God does” when I read this everything seemed to make sense. I’m so thankful that our God didn’t create us to all fit the same size. He has ways that are made specifically for me and one specifically for you, both completely different but beautifully woven to perfectly fit each of us. He has made a plan for me that He knew I could handle but only by trusting Him through it all. And by trusting Him, He gives me the strength I need to be okay. By trusting Him, His glory is revealed. 

So this week, instead of looking around and comparing my plan to someone else’s plan, I am going to put one foot in front of the other and trust Him. I’m going to look at the ways he has given me and remember how blessed I am. I’m going to remember that His ways are higher than my ways and I’m so thankful for this.

  1. At church last night the topic was “being thankful” no matter what. The Lord does have a plan for each of us. Amen.
