Each part of our life is a dot that God is connecting. You can trust that God’s plan for your life will connect the dots into a beautiful masterpiece just like I trust God’s plan for my life.It's impossible to see our lives from the past, present, and future but not for God!

Be Encouraged! God’s Plan for Your Life is Connecting The Dots
Did you know God is connecting the dots of your life? He has a master plan for all of us and longs to encourage you. He cares about you and me and knows us each by name. It’s impossible to see our lives from the past, present, and future but not for God! Be encouraged! God sees the Big Picture from His perspective!
You really can trust that God’s plan for your life will connect the dots. But maybe you are doubting and have some questions:
- How do I know God’s plan for my life?
- What does the Bible say about God’s plan for my life?
- Does God have a specific plan for my life?
- Where does the Bible say God has a plan for my life?
- Can you ruin God’s plan for your life?
- How do you know God’s purpose for your life?
This video will walk you through a lot of those questions: Click here to watch the video as I share how I trust God’s plan for my life!
What Does the Bible Say About God’s Plan For My Life?
God has a plan. Having God’s perspective on life is the secret to peace. Peace is what we need while we are waiting on God to connect all the dots.
If you are asking, “Does God have a specific plan for my life?” or, “Where does the Bible say God has a plan for my life?”. These are two of my favorite trusting GOd’s plan for my life Bible verses!
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17 NIV
3 Ways to Be Encouraged as You Wait on the Lord:
God has a plan for your life! The trouble is that His timing is not our timing. Trusting God’s plan for my life requires a bit of waiting. Here are 3 ways you can be encouraged as you wait on the lord to continue connecting the dots in your life.
- Spend time in God’s Word
- Create your life timeline and see how God has been working
- Take the time to reflect on the goodness of God with a thankful heart in prayer.
Spend Time in God’s Word
Create Your Timeline
Create your life timeline and see how God has been working
This is how you create a timeline:
- Draw a line and put two dots at the beginning and end.
- The dots represent your birth and today.
- Next, add dots of important things in your life.
- Each dot will reveal what God has been doing in your past.
Reflect with Thanksgiving
Take the time to reflect on the goodness of God with a thankful heart in prayer.
“give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV
Your Thoughts Matter
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8 NIV
God’s Peace Comes With Practice
“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9 NIV
Part Two: Align Yourself With God for His Peace
God sees you and knows you by name. He cares about you and will never leave you.
“Notice the way God does things, then fall into line” Ecclesiastes 7:8a
God See’s You
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (Genesis 50:20 NIV
