For I know the plans I have for you ....
The online bible study at Proverbs 31 Ministries, Made to Crave will be starting January 19. I'm really excited for this study. I don't have the book, but I'm going to try and follow along as well as I can, until I can afford it.
On the most recent blog post for this study, we were invited to begin joining in on the blog hop. Each week they will give us topics from which we will choose one to write about on our blog, then share with others. Today, I am choosing the topic of My Favorite Bible Verse.
Actually, like many others I'm sure, I have more than one favorite. Jeremiah 29:11 is one that always comes to mind, though. It's been a favorite for a long time. Also, my mom had this verse, along with others, posted near her computer. She was diagnosed with brain cancer in April of 2012, and went home to be with Jesus on September 7, 2012. This verse has always comforted me, reminding me that while I may not always know the hows and whys of things, GOD DOES!
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
My word for the year is PEACE. It's the first time I've chosen to study one word through the course of a year. Jeremiah 29:11 definitely is a peace-giving verse! I may struggle with things in my daily life, but God is there! And He has a plan for me! AMEN!!
