For I will consider a plan of peace for you, to give you god things, not calamities. Therefore, pray to Me, and I will hear you. Seek Me, and you will find Me because you seek Me with all your heart.
– Jeremiah 36:11-13
Jeremiah wrote this passage to Jewish people who were living as captives in Babylon. It was a time of struggle and sorrow for them, but those hard times brought forth repentance and courageous faith.
Sometimes we lose our way in life, but if we repent and seek Him with our whole hearts, God hears us and draws near to us. Often, his plans for us unfold in amazing ways out of the depths of our losses; bringing beauty from unexpected places. His plan is not just for our lives here, but for bringing us home to our real lives in heaven.
Lord, when I’ve lost my way and am looking for You, help me find You. Help me to trust You to guide me on the best paths for my life.
