Jeremiah 29:11 is my favorite scripture.
It basically says that God has a plan for you and that He wants to give you a future and a hope. Isn’t that amazing? I think it’s important for everyone to know this and to experience God’s plan for their life. For me, it started when I wrote a letter to the Lord at 20 years of age. I basically surrendered my gifts, talents and abilities to the One who created me.
I told God that I wanted to be in His perfect will for my life. I tell the story in my book “Surrender All” and really, the rest is history. I had no idea what God’s plan entailed for me but it has been an amazing ride with lots of twists and turns along the way and God’s unwavering faithfulness.
I married my wonderful husband, joined him in ministry, began the journey of Christian television, had three beautiful children and now a worldwide television network that reaches around the world. My word of encouragement to you today is to know that God has a plan for your life and it’s never too late.
Surrender all to him and you’ll never be the same.
