along paths.

You are my beloved child. I chose you before the foundation of the world, to walk with Me along paths designed uniquely for you. Concentrate on keeping in step with Me,  instead of trying to anticipate my plans for you. If you trust that My plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, you can relax and enjoy the present moment. 

Your hope and your future are rooted in heaven, where eternal ecstasy awaits you. Nothing can rob you of your inheritance of unimaginable riches and well-being. Sometimes I grant you glimpses of your glorious future, to encourage you and spur you on. But your main focus should be staying close to Me. I set the pace in keeping with your needs and My purposes.
{40 Days with Jesus by Sarah Young}

Just as He chose us in Him before the foundations of the world, that we should be holy 
and without blame before Him in love. -Ephesians 1:4

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
 plans to give you hope and a future. -Jeremiah 29:11 

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession--to the praise of his glory. 
-Ephesians 1:13-14

{Today, I am desperately trying to "concentrate on keeping in step" with Jesus. We are so tempted to choose our own paths, to lead our own lives, to attempt to organize and control everything, and walk alone. But why? Why would we choose to walk alone when we can walk with our Father. We have a Father who wants to hold our hands, who wants to lead us in the right direction, and wants to be our true companion. I want to trust Him fully and recognize His purpose for me and my life.} -j
