21 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: Hope

© Anita P Peppers - Fotolia.com

“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)

Life is often full of blind corners, hair pin turns and bumps in the road.  Even though we cannot fully see all that God has planned for us, we can be confident that He has good things on the horizon.  I’ve been thinking about hope, faith and prosperity lately.  I’m trusting in His provision today and looking forward with hope.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a simple scripture with simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    I LOVE that verse, Barbie! But I truly love the verses after it the
    best…”Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to
    you. You will seek Me and find Me when you see Me with all your heart. I will be
    found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from
    captivity.”

    I love Jeremiah 29:11, it is one that I think of in pray often when I am praying for the people God has placed on my mind. 
    Blessings,

      Ha ha, no worries.  I just wanted to have a place for simplicity.  I don’t mind at all if you link up your longer posts filled with His Word!

    I held tight to this verse in 2010….got me through a difficult time! It’s one of those verses I reflect on often when the answers are unknown or not what you expected or wanted.
