"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
There is tremendous consolation during every frustration (from burning supper to losing a job) in knowing God has lovingly made a Divine Plan for my life and that Plan is meant for "good and not for evil" (as one translation phrases it). From the loss of a "best friend" in elementary school to the death of a sweetheart in high school to loss of a child in early adulthood to the massive heart attack of a husband; one thing was certain. God was still in charge and He still had a Plan which would benefit me, drawing me into ever closer fellowship. How incredible!!
