More Than We Can Plan

From the day they are born and even before they are born, we are busy making plans for our children. But we aren’t the only ones. No matter how much time we spend making plans, doing our very best for our children every day, we can never truly know what God’s plan is for them. Or us.

God is planning so much more than we can ever imagine. As it states in Jeremiah 29, “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord … to give you a future with hope.”

Yes, hope.

Our plans need to include helping our young people build a life grounded in faith that will last a lifetime and will allow them to come to know the God of hopeful futures. To inspire them to share their faith, ideas and unique gifts with the church and the world, and in so doing, bring hope to others.
