I trust that there is a plan for my life, even if it has yet to be revealed.

I enjoy the fact that life is a bit of mystery and that I can’t possibly predict the future. It keeps my life exciting!

I relax and enjoy each day because I am confident that I was put here for a reason. In following my dreams, I am gradually unfolding and revealing that purpose.

I believe the Creator put me together with my unique set of dreams, interests, and talents for a reason. I am confident in this plan, so I happily follow my heart.

When I cross stitch, I put many hours into hundreds of tiny stitches in the fabric. Each, on its own, amounts to but a speck of color. If I turn the canvas over, all I see is a mess of knots and tangled threads.

Yet I continue to follow the pattern and place stitch after stitch, knowing that, in the end, a beautiful picture full of color, light, and substance will be revealed.

Just as with needlework, I do not expect the picture of my life to be revealed all at once. My life is a work of art and a labor of love. I am content to put in my daily stitches, confident that, in time, the picture will be revealed.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I take confident action even when I don’t know what will happen next?
2. Do I trust that my dreams and desires are a gift from the Creator?
3. What am I doing to take the next step toward revealing my purpose?
