Sunday, December 14 – Third Sunday of Advent
“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:11-14
This is a passage that has always given me hope whenever I am waiting for the future to unfold. I find great comfort in being assured that God has a plan and that this plan is good. No matter how far I may seem to be from God due to what happens in life, I have hope.
