“For I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11
These words have never left me over the years. Time and time again, I am reminded that mine is not just a random course. That there is a purpose, and if I’m patient enough to wait, a path through the wilderness.
I’ve even named my guitar Jeremiah, because as I hold my guitar to me everyday, so do I keep those words close.
Thwarted dreams are terrible things, and I’ve seen people twisted and made hollow by them. Slowly, but surely, I’ve begun to let go of the things I decided I wanted long ago and instead, trust that maybe there are better things to hope for.
