God is Faithful - Scripture Sunday

 
11 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 (NIV)

Sarah and I chose this verse as one of our life verses many years ago. It has meant a lot to us over the years when we have had difficulties in life, ministry, and, of course, with the health problems of our children. Hearing the news that your child has cancer or is autistic or developmentally delayed is difficult as is disappointments and set backs in ministry. 

The recent change in our ministry and life has put this verse back in the forefront of our thoughts again. This verse has given us reassurance that God knows what He is doing. Everything is going to be okay. Although it is hard, we know that and we know that we will come out better for it and our ministry will be even stronger for it.

When you go through trials and tribulations in life, remember this verse. Maybe even memorize it and write it upon your heart so that you can be reminded that God is always in control. He knows what he is doing. He is faithful.

Thank you, Lord, for being faithful at all times. Thank you for loving us and taking care of us. Thank you for all of the blessings that you have given us. Please help us to be reminded of  many things that you have blessed us with instead of the trials that we may be going through. 
 
We love you Lord.
 
Amen!

    We are all brothers in the Body of Christ there is no reason to supporting others because of we have been to edify the saints who are living in want and poverty They worship in Spirit and in Truth but are hungry and needy. Ephe: 1: 4. , Mathew: 25: 35 to 40 and “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble.” James 1:27
