Word for the Weekend - Jeremiah 29


"For I know the plans I have for you, delclares the Lord,

Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

Then you will call upon me and

and come and pray to me,

and I will listen to you.

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

I will be found by you, declares
the Lord."


Jeremiah 29 : 11 - 14a NIV



Kay's favorite scripture. Please keep us in your prayers as we help her move to another province to attend bible school and seek God for her future. I'll be back later in the week.

I try so hard to not have a favorite Bible verse, Susanne. But I have to admit, Jeremiah 29 always, always speaks to me.

Beautiful. And it's absolutely perfect that you would choose this verse, this weekend. "...the plans I have for you," is perfect because your daughter is moving into the next stage of her life.

May God go with you and comfort you as you help her transition into this huge new stage of her life. I've been there. Twice. And I know it's difficult for us moms. Very difficult. But I also know, you survive.

It's just hard when our first chick leaves the nest. There's no way around it - it's emotionally devastating.

Bless your heart. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and in my prayers.

I have that verse on a plaque on our wall. I'm praying it for your Kay right now. And that the Lord would give you courage and comfort as your first fledgling leaves the nest.

I love that verse. It's not easy to take that first one off to school! I was very teary and I'm sure most all moms are. I hope you're faring ok this week, thinking about you! It will get better!

One of my very favorite verses, too. Praying for each of you, especially your dear Kay and you. God bless each of you abundantly, my friend, and keep you all safe. Thinking of you... :0)

Bev said...

Letting go is so hard. I'll be praying for all of you. I'm sure God has great things in store for her but that doesn't make it easier to let her go either.

Susie said...
