Thoughts In My Head...

As I sit with the windows open and listen to the rain drops hit the grass, I feel the cool breeze come through the window.  Opening the window, kind of plays on my symbolic side for a moment.  Open the window to my heart and mind, so I can get a better view and feel for what is out there.  With my 40th birthday just a few days away, I begin to contemplate.  Contemplating what God has in store for me and what I need to change to set my eyes on His path and not mine. 

Seeing the leaves on the ground, I know there is a new season that is about to begin.  Such as my life, a new season.  A season of changes, that is for sure.

"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.

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own."  Matthew 6:34.

"Be still, and know that I am God."  Psalm 46:10

An open window, an open heart.  Knowing the Lord is with me through times of self-doubt and questions.  Looking forward to the changing season.
