12 Days of Christmas

Day 11 - God's Plan

We often find ourselves making judgements on people with very little knowledge about that individual. These statements were said about some very famous people but can you guess who was being talked about in each case? (Answers at the bottom!)

1. "We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out."

2. "We don’t need you. You haven’t got through college yet."

3. "Far too noisy…Far too many notes."

4. "You better learn secretarial work or else get married."

5. "It doesn’t matter what he does, he will never amount to anything."

One thing we know is that God has much better plans for us, filled with encouragement for each and every one of us to trust, believe and put our hope in. Here's a few lines from Jeremiah that we can all take heart from...

“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.

So there we have it! Don't listen to those who will put you down, those who are out to harm you. Listen and be open to God as you enter this new year and trust in the plans he has made for each and very one of us.
