October's Verse of Encouragement 2016 + Free Printable

6:00:00 PM

As I mentioned in one of last month's blog posts, I have written a verse of encouragement in my planner for each month this year. If you missed last month's verse, you can check it out here!

This month's verse is Jeremiah 29:11.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I can't believe it's October already! I know I say that every month, but I really mean it! I started blogging in January and it's crazy to think that almost an entire year has passed!

I'm gonna be honest with you guys, this month has started off pretty rough. As I'm sure you guys have noticed, I've been a little behind on my blog post schedule. Normally, I post 5 days a week, but I've barely managed 5 posts in the last few weeks.

Per usual, the reasoning behind my absence is solely due to my health. I've been struggling with side effects of my Lupus medication, an IBS flare, a bout of depression, all four wisdom teeth pushing through, and a Fibromyalgia flare. I haven't told anyone this yet, but it's gotten pretty bad. The other night I fell, and I didn't get back up. I tried, but there was just no way that I could do it. It was so bad that I actually ended up asking my husband for a pillow and a blanket, then proceeded to sleep on the floor. And might I add, that did not help with the pain.

Overall, God's been testing me and I haven't exactly been passing with flying colors, but he says that's ok. Even when I forget it sometimes, God still has a plan for me. He still continues to love and support me through everything that I'm struggling with and he continues to push along right beside me. And for that, I am forever grateful.

It's hard to think about sometimes, that even when we aren't thinking about taking care of ourselves, there's still someone else out there caring for us anyways. Even when we don't see it, God really is working on us and creating a life for us. He not only gave up his one and only son to take away our sins, but he loves us unconditionally, he provides for us, he gives us strength, and he has a plan for us; and I'm so glad that he does.

For those of you that need this reminder, or are simply looking for new art to hang on your walls, I have created a beautiful printout of this verse that I'd love to share with you! I hope that this verse brings comfort to you and really resonates in your heart!
