“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.”

Like many, I find tremendous comfort in the the Jeremiah 29:11 scripture.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve  experienced  a tremendous life shift. As part of that process, I’ve held fast to this scripture, developing a stronger relationship with God and rekindling a faith I had inadvertently pushed aside.

As a result, I’ve found an inner peace and joy I didn’t even know was possible. I feel like a completely different woman.

We all experience obstacles and go through life’s trials. That is just a fact. When we find ourselves in these situations it is important to remember the above scripture and not lose faith. God wants us to have a peaceful and abundant life now, even if  our circumstances are less than ideal.
