“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11, NKJV
Stephanie was going to be a doctor when she grew up. While playing on the playground, she said to her friends, “One day I’m going to be a doctor.” She told her parents. She told her neighbors. She even told her dog. Everyone knew what she would be. When she became a teenager she got involved with the wrong crowd and became pregnant. Three months later after giving birth to her first child, she became pregnant again and decided to drop out of school. Her dreams of becoming a doctor seemed so out of reach that she stopped talking about it to anyone.
What dreams have you stopped talking about? Understand that nothing can alter the purpose and plans God has specifically designed for you.
It doesn’t matter how messed up your life has been. It doesn’t matter who you got involved with that almost destroyed you. It doesn’t matter how many babies you have, the education you didn’t receive, the many years that have gone by, or where you come from. God loves you and you are special to Him. You will accomplish everything He has predestined for you to accomplish by His grace. You are not too old, you are not too messed up, and you are not too late. It’s time you start talking again about who you will be and what you will do.
It’s time you start dreaming again and actively pursuing those dreams. Never mind who doesn’t believe in you. God believes in you and He wants you to believe in you. Settle in your heart today that you will be somebody and you will not give up on your dreams.
Prayer: Thank You Lord for speaking to my heart. Remove all fear and shame from my life. Help me to rediscover your purpose and plan for my life. Give me hope and a future. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Meditate on this today: Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”)

Serious question. Is Stephanie a real person? If so, did she become a doctor?
My God my God thank you for speaking and encouraging my discouraged heart,i feel lifted in my spirit!!!!!!In Jesus name
@Mollie, I hear you! I have the hardest time believing this is for everyone. When you wait and believe for so long, and you have gone through what seems so close to hell and back, to live through it and yet to wait for God to bless you while those in the world continue to live a blessed life, it makes you rethink everything you thought you could believe in! We always hear He will never give you more than you can handle, that He is not a respect or of persons, that Hisnplans for you are good etc… but you continue to struggle and lose hope over and over again, how much more do we have to endure before the reality and pressures of depression and suicide sets in. Just being real. Don’t know if anyone else out there is just as real… or maybe I’m the only one 😔
Peace & Blessings Sister Brandy💖!!!
WOW…Sis you are NOT alone! I can’t speak for anyone else but from my own personal experiences. I once felt like you feel..it seemed like everyone around me was doing GREAT..except me! I thought I had crossed all my t’s dotted all my i’s & NOTHING..people I KNEW for sure who were doing (what I thought) were ALL the wrong things..had the nice car, clothes, house..everything material I could see on the outside..& me..what did I have..NOTHING..struggling..trying to make a dollar outta fifteen cents..but..I kept the FAITH!!! I’d be lying to you if I’d tell you sometimes I didn’t say..Lord, why am I struggling & I’m doing the right thing & The Jones’ over there that’s partying like rock stars, selling drugs & living fabulous got it so good? WHY LORD WHY?? Well…one day the FEDS came & gone were the car, the clothes, the house & the partying rock star Jones’…I guess the Lord said..does that answer your question.
Bottom line Brandy, everything that looks good on the outside ain’t all it’s cracked up to be..”all that glitters ain’t gold”..find you a Bible Based Church Sis…depression is REAL..BUT..SUICIDE IS NOT THE ANSWER!!! Think about ALL the people that LOVE YOU that would be devastated & their world turned upside down if you were no longer in it! Find you a Counselor if one is not available go to your nearest hospital & tell them your concerns & your feelings? Trust ME God has placed people in these positions to help! You’re gonna be just fine..How do I know..because you’ve taken the first step by reaching out…The Lord has a plan for you..you’re gonna have a testimony..you’re gonna help save someone else’s life!
Be Blessed My Sister..Stay Humble..Seek The Help You Need & Most Importantly Stay Encouraged!!!!
I look forward to hearing from you again soon!!
Love Always Your DOTK Sister In Christ, Wendy💕

Thank you for this beautiful reminder. Thank you for the encouragement, He sees us, He knows our name. Thank you Father that my purpose shall be fulfilled in this life. Amen.
