I just had a conversation with some of my senior students tonight about future plans.  They had “Big Plans” they just weren’t exactly sure what those plans would be.  It got me thinking about my own senior year and the plans before me.  In Jeremiah 29:11 God says “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm, plans to give hope and a future.” I wondered to myself if God had laid out the plans he had for me for the next 15 years after my senior year, if I would have accepted them.  I had to admit if i knew what God would take me through in advance I probably would’ve rejected it.  It was just too scary, too hard, too unreal.  I’m thankful that the verse says “He” knows the plans!  He’s the one in control.  It doesn’t say You (John)  know the “Big Plans” I have for you! He knows the plans and the plans he’s had for my life are far beyond what I could have asked or imagined.  I played soccer in the yard tonight with an 8 year old who looks a little like me and is passionate about sports! Simply amazing!  That conversation I had with those seniors was part of the job God has called me to.  Wow!!!  I can’t wait to see what “He” has for the future for myself and those seniors.  I know He has “Big Plans”!
