Stick with the Plan!

It's been a good day, I've accomplished stuff.  But, then sometime late this afternoon, I started to feel a little discouraged. I received an email, and it kinda set me in a discouraged mood.  My kids ran down to play with the neighbor and I went to the bedroom, to pray.
"Jesus, in my heart I want to do as You have asked! Change me so I can carry out Your plan, not mine. Jesus, I need You, help me.  I believe in the calling You have set before me, but I am not moving right now. I feel like I'm just here, Jesus do something!"
Hebrew 10 came to mind and I grabbed my bible that was sitting right beside me.  Willing to hear, eager to see what He was going to give to me, right now, in this moment.
The chapter is full of treasure and, of course, it is just what I needed to hear.  It starts out reminding me of the sacrifice of Jesus and His forgiveness.  It tells how Jesus walked this earth God's way, so that he could enact a new plan for me. Such amazing love! His plan, carved on the lining of my heart.
It encouraged me to believe in his promises, to love and help others. To worship with others.  It reminds me that vengeance is His, not mine.  And, at end of the chapter, He says this: "Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back. So don't throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves  then. It's still a sure thing! But you need to stick it out, staying with God's plan so you'll be there for the promised completion."
Ah, I really needed to hear this.  I needed Him to tell me to keep going, to not let stuff get to me.  This is about Jesus and His plan, not me.
Say that Again, dear Jesus, keep reminding me that I need to keep going.  I need to stick with Your plan, and join You. It's all good!
