Laying in His Peace, Words of my Heart by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

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

We are turning the point of a year since my dad continued on to be with the Father.  So many things taught by my parents were joint, but the list making and the process of making decisions and weighing all aspects was definitely my Dad's strongest asset. 

We have all the pieces to put together our lives as God has in His plans for us, no different than this puzzle in progress.  Our lives are in progress.  Sometimes you pick up a piece and try it in place and it does not fit.  You release it and try another until you find the piece that fits right there. In doing puzzles it is common to sort out the like pieces in different places so if you are working on the sky, you go to the sky pieces, or working on a pink building, go to the pink building pieces. You don't waste time trying out sky on the pink building.

In life we know the difference between our choices as well and can sort them out. Our hearts are often leading us in places our brain would never go. That is when it is time to pray and open your heart to Him to light the way so your heart and head have to get out of the way.  It is very hard to let go because it is a common trait for all of us to want to control our lives.  

The Father knows what piece is ready for your life. Time to get out of the way and let Him lay in His piece... or is it His Peace.

Words of my heart, Laurie
