This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is rather fitting as this is my first blog post of 2016!
Our lives are filled with firsts. First steps, first love, first kiss, first job, first baby. Those are the big ones that we expect to come, but then there are the ones we are less aware are coming. The first Bible verse that takes ahold of your heart, or the first time you step out on faith into what you feel God calling you to. Firsts come with great big expectations and sometimes the realization of dreams. Sometimes firsts teach us that when we fall down or fail at something that we should get back up and try again.
The first verse that really took ahold of my heart has been a favorite ever since that day. Jeremiah 29:11 holds all the promises of a life that is held firmly in God’s hands and I am grateful that He gave me that very special first to remind me that He’s got this. That even when I have no idea where to go from here, He knows where I’m heading.
