What is GOD'S plan for you?

The following article is adapted from Chapter Four of Pat's new book, How to Survive the Economic Meltdown. Over the last year, Mark has watched his small business teeter on the brink. Sometimes when he can't sleep, he repeats the words of Jesus over and over, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Eventually, he dozes off. Mark said, “Sure, it's tough. But I've grown more spiritually in the last year than in the previous ten years combined. Yes, it's scary, but it's also exciting. Because I know that only God can make this right.” How God Sees You Let me summarize what the Bible has to say about you. He knit you together in your mother's womb. He knows when you sit or stand. He knows every word before it forms on the tip of your tongue. He determined the exact times and places where you would live. When Jesus looks at you He is filled with compassion, because you are harassed and helpless, like a sheep without a shepherd. God our Savior wants all men—including you—to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. He takes no delight in the death of the wicked. You are His “special possession.” You are the full expression of God's creative genius. God was at His very best when He made you. His love is staggering.

I am also in a big big problem right now and I also admit that only during these times I started looking for God in my life. I have problems since graduating but only this problem now that I started really looking for God's presence. I am learning a lot from life right now as I journey to this problem but my hunger for knowing God's plan for me keeps me fighting for survival. I know God will give me a better life soon after I learned from my mistakes. I dream of someday speaking to people on how God helped me show the way to eternal happiness and success, in God's perfect time.

God knows everything and made all of the things. He owns this world and the earth we live in. He could end this in a snap. We are nothing without God, and so I always thank Him everyday, through Jesus, for this life, the guidance, the enlightened mind and the peace.

hi, your topic really caught my attention... I really don't know what is GOD's plan for me. For so many problems and hardship I'm facing since then, I can't find the reason why I'm still here. I keep on holding to HIM knowing that someday I will know what He wants me to be. But still there comes a time that I think no reason to live anymore. I feel useless in this world... for anybody, for everybody. I feel that I have nothing good to do here so why am I here? But don't think that I'm too bad, I'm not. Its just a feeling of being ignored by GOD sometimes. I'm still in the positive side, I'm still hoping for the better days of my life. I'm still holding on to my faith with GOD, that He will not leave me on this dark side. That He will give the best on the right time and I'm waiting for that right time to come...
