Reading through blogs I follow Melinda Velez over at Mel's Godly Gals gave me an "ah-ha" moment.
This from Jeremiah is well known: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Reading these am I alone in thinking, and sub-consciously expecting, that if I live my life as God calls me to that I should surely prosper? I'm using the defintion of prosper in accordance to Merriam Webster; to succeed in an enterprise or activity, especially to achieve economic success.
Melinda Velez helped me to hear what I sub-consciously already know. Dollars signs are not the only sign, or the usual sign, God grants prosperity. God prospers us with intelligence, wisdom, opportunities and relationships. Counting these blessings my life is rich indeed!
I needed the reminder to look outside the box of current thought. Do you, too, need a reminder?
