{Stitch Fix Part III}

Financial plans, meal plans, diet plans, weekend plans, party plans…we all make them.

I am a planner! I am a “to do” list girl and live by my calendar. I love celebrations and nothing gets my wheels turning like planning a party. The dreaming, scheming, shopping, prepping, decorating, and finally celebrating makes my heart beat fast. Somewhere between the initial thoughts and the actual party, the date is announced and invitations given that the event is “established.”

God is the ultimate planner. His plans are perfect! He is the grand “establisher.”

“I know the plans that I have for Y~O~U declares the Lord, plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” ~Jeremiah 29:11

There is an exhilarating experience when we surrender our plans to the Lord and say YES to Him. Whether we are in times of joy or times of tribulation, He will bring peace and strength to us when we allow Him to ESTABLISH our lives according to His perfect will.

Proverbs 16:3 encourages us to “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will ESTABLISH your plans.”

When we surrender our dreams to our Heavenly Father, He ESTABLISHES the plans that He has for us firmly. We can be assured that He is weaving our lives into His tapestry for eternity. When we surrender the threads of our desires into His hands for stitching, He is able to use us and our stories for His glory. These are threads that can never be removed from the fabric. They are held tight for eternity. His establishment is so much greater and better than we could have ever accomplished on our own.

He ESTABLISHES us individually and personally. He has a plan and a purpose that is unique to each of us. His plan for me is specific for me. His plan for you is specific for you. No one else can achieve the plan that He has set for us individually. Hebrews 12 reminds us each that we have a race to run. He has set forth and established our race for us. No one else can run your race. Satan tries to distract us to a different race and discourages us to quit. But God has already ESTABLISHED us and purposed us with His plan. So just when you think you can’t take one more step, feel completely out of breath and can’t continue on in your race, remember this:

God has woven our lives into the very fabric of His divine plan. His stitching ESTABLISHES us in to His glorious tapestry. You are ESTABLISHED my friend!

Fashioned for This,
