The Plan Is...What?

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11, NKJV)

When was the last time you were amazed by God's plan? I want to share such a story with you. As I've shared before, the day before Thanksgiving in 2011, the Lord brought a special lady into my life. That lady is Debbie Holman. In almost a year, we've grown as close as sisters would be. Although we live more miles apart than we'd like, that doesn't stop our friendship from getting stronger each day. Each time I'm struggling, I can go to her for support and comfort. This lady will go to bat for me with all she has! We joke and say she'll pull Trudy Lou (that's another story) but, in all seriousness she would do that. Do you have some one that God has brought into your life that will go to bat for you at a moment's notice? Neither Debbie or I realized the bond that would develop from a long chat on facebook one evening. There are days when I sit back and marvel and ask the Lord "your plan was this?" All I can say is that I am so greatful that He has sent such a precious lady to me. Debbie, thank you! Ladies, if you don't have a friend...a confidont...let me encourage you, ask the Lord to bring just the right person. Let me assure you, you'll be amazed!

Father, thank You for the friends you've sent our way. Thank You Lord that on the occasions when they can't be there, You are our greatest and dearest friend. There's not a human on earth that can replace you. I pray for my readers that you'll send her a friend that she can confide in at any time and for anything. In Jesus Name, Amen.
