As I have designed, so shall it be; and as I have planned, so shall it come to pass. Isaiah 14:24 NRSV

Thought

As with any viable plan, there is an architect who designs the structure and executes the details so that the end result reflects the plan. On this day of rest for your soul, trust in God’s plan. You are designed to perfection by the master architect whose plan for your life will come to pass.

Prayer

God, when I step away from the remains of grief I have a better view of your plan. I will never understand death, but I trust that, in a way yet unknown to me, grief is part of your plan for my life in you. Amen.

Assurance

I believe that the plan designed by God especially for my life will come to pass.
