Your Heavenly Father loves you.
Let that sink in for a moment.
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)
God is truly good and so are His plans for you. Let this truth dwell in your heart. Even when you feel as though your life is falling apart or that things are just too overwhelming, remember that the Lord also has a plan and that His plan is good. It is not His will for you to be harmed, depressed or abused. So if you are currently going through these things, know assuredly that He will bring you out.
Hope truly brings light to our soul. It gives us something to look forward to, something to aim towards and live for. All our hopes should be found in Christ as these are the only hopes that are guaranteed.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. (Proverbs 13:12, NLT)
