Don't fear the future. Here's why.

Don't fear the future. Here's why.

I spend so much time thinking about the future. Its not that i'm afraid of what the future holds but i'm excited! I can't wait to see the career God guides me to, the children I might have or the place I might live. This is all so exciting because I know that God will always take care of me. 

Something that I have been learning is based off of the bible verse Proverbs 16:9 which says "The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." I am pursuing photography and I feel like I have mentally blocked God out of it; I am trying to learn these skills and master them on my own. By trying to do it on my own I am literally doing exactly the opposite of what God says. 

God desires for our number one focus to be Him. When we put God first He will establish our steps; He will provide. Now we are all able to take a deep breath, knowing that God takes care of his people.

My advice to myself and possibly you would be to stop trying to do it on your own. God knows exactly what you need and He WILL provide. His plans for you are beyond what you could ever even imagine.
