Lately I've been loving the denim on denim look! We've been having the nicest, breezy and cool weather lately. I paired my favorite Levi's with a Gap denim jacket that I've had for years, and a simple olive turtle neck from Forever. I also got this lovely Michael Kors bag for christmas, and if you follow me on Instagram you know I LOVE these booties! Some boots are really uncomfortable and by the end of the day your toes/feet hurt. That is not the case with these, which is why they're so loved in my wardrobe.
I also just wanted to chat a little bit with you guys today about how I've been feeling lately and what I've been going through. In some aspects of my life I plan a lot. I have a lot of hopes, dreams and aspirations, as I'm sure many of you do too. I set goals and have timelines of when I'd like to get certain things done, or of where I want to be by the age of 25. We make all plans and have these ideas of how our lives will be. We plan for the tiniest details - down to a tee. We set these expectations in our head, and when those things we hope for so deeply don't come to light, we hurt.
I'm learning every day, and rejoice in knowing that God has a plan for my life. But, even in knowing this, I still hurt. I still hurt, but I trust him. If things don't work out, maybe, juuust maybe, God had something greater planned for you. With God, my life has purpose, even when I can't see that. He knows your heart and what you yearn for most.
If this resonated with you, I encourage you to dig into the word. Sit back and just listen. Listen to what God has to say to you, and watch him reveal the wonderful path he has made just for you.
I hope that you guys enjoy this post and I'll leave you all with this verse in two of my favorite translations.
"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." - Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." - Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
