"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
Jeremiah 29:11

You planned to save my very soul
before life as we know.
As You created the heavenlies,
my grace did You bestow.
I cannot understand the length
You went to save my soul;
how can You care for even me,
and make my being whole?

In the beginning, even before
You saw what I would need,
You knew that I would need forgiveness
for mine every deed!
You knew the grace and mercy it
would take to change my heart;
You saw each need and made a way,
addressing every part!

You planned for my salvation before
any other plan;
everything about creation
focused on mere man!
How can I focus on myself
in light of Your great love?
Help me to be more 'in' the world,
and so much lesser 'of!'

I have to be out in the world,
I don't have to 'belong.'
I must 'listen' to this life,
but I can 'hear' a song!
Brother man must 'look' at me,
but he can 'see' Your face
because of Your supreme design
to save us by Your grace!

You purposed everything for me,
it is not 'me' at all!
As I live each moment, may
the man within me fall!
And may the Lord alive inside
be felt and seen and heard,
so that my brother man behold
the wonder of The Word!

God the Father is so in love with you that He already took the time to plan out your every step! Do you trust Him that much?
Do you rise in the morning saying "Father, here is what I am going to do today, wanna join me?" or can you say "Father, here am I to go with You and accomplish all that You want done today!"?
