I was talking to another teen girl recently and she told me something that made me sad. She said, “I don’t expect good things to happen anymore. I find out that when I don’t expect them to happen, I don’t get disappointed and if someone good was to happen, then it makes me just that much more excited.
That sounds great and all, but it makes my heart sad, because when we live life expecting disappointments, we are going to live our lives discouraged.
God doesn’t want us to live a life of discouragement or disappointment. He wants us to live a life of expecting good things to happen, because He is always looking for ways He can get good things to you!
Many of us know the verse, Jeremiah 29:11, but I want you to really think about this and ask yourself, do I really believe it?
It says, “for I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans of peace and NOT evil, plans to give you a future and a hope!”
God is saying…you don’t need to expect bad things to happen all the time, you can expect good, because He is good.
Now, I’m not saying that bad things will never happen, the storms of life come to every home, but they don’t have to touch you. They don’t have to hurt you. They don’t have to shake you.
You don’t have to live your life defeated and discouraged, because you have God on your side.
