I woke up this morning and found this text waiting for me from a precious friend. She will never know how deeply it encouraged me. I needed to hear about God’s Work, His power, His love… WOW! He sure answered my prayer and hers. Connecting the dots again…
“I was just reading my Bible and praying over this final decision to be made tomorrow. I was a few days behind on the blog and had just finished reading Jeremiah 29:11 (and the verses that come after) when guess what I come across? Yep, your blog on the verses that follow that verse. The Message Bible puts it this way “I will show up and take care of you and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing, I have it all planned out-plans to take care of you, not abandon you and plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me. When you come and pray to me. I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.
Synchronicity sister! Synchronicity! Know why I was a few days behind? And, why did I come across this particular blog post after just reading these verses? CIRCLES ANNA! CIRCLES AND SYNCHRONICITY! God has something He must want to tell me. You think? Thought you would enjoy this. This is more like a novella than a text though! :)”

Thank your for this precious post! I had wanted to reply several days ago following the post that spoke about the Jeremiah 29:11-13 passage! I wanted to say that one of my pet peeves with Jeremiah 29:11 (can you have a pet peeve with a verse of scripture?!?! ) is that it is referred to almost exclusively by itself and the BEST part for me is verse 13 “When you seek Me with all of your heart, you WILL FIND ME!!!” What an amazing promise! We don’t have to argue our faith…we simply implore others to SEEK the one true God. If someone says they don’t believe in God then I counter with “Then you have not sought Him, because if you seek Him you will find Him, His Word promises!!!” End of argument (or discussion!) Until someone is actively seeking our God, there isn’t much point in trying to convince them that He is REAL!!! Years ago, a friend did an embroidery piece of Jeremiah 29:13 for me that is now hanging in my guest room! If I were smart enough I would attach a picture of it to this reply!!
Love the encouragement!!!!!! A BIG HUG to you Anna and all your sweet blogging pals!!!!!!!!!!!
Well since folks don’t visit here often, I posted your comment! Seems God is SPEAKING UP A STORM! 🙂 I LOVE YOU!!!
