This Unexpected Life

We never fully imagine God’s plans for us. When we walk in trust and faith, we receive this unexpected life of blessings and silver linings.

Dearest Father,
Thank you for this unexpected life
The plans you create are far
More glorious than ones
We could imagine

You establish our steps
With surprise all the time

When we put our faith in You
Putting our life in Your control
Then we receive your perfect plan
Orchestrated in every detail

You are all-knowing
All-powerful
And everywhere
Your thoughts,
And ways
Above

A Loving Father
So, patient and
Forgiving

Thank You for
Unexpected gifts,
blessings, and silver linings

I never imagined that I could do the things that I do. And it is only so because you plant delightful, unexpected ways in my heart.



Isaiah 55:8
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 55:8 KJV



A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.

Proverbs 16:9 KJV


Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us

Ephesians 3:20 KJV
