For being a verse that I think I can honestly say I hate, it sure keeps coming into my head. You think God is trying to say something? Maybe I am hearing Him a bit this morning.

"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."

Did you guess the verse. Yep, my dreaded Jer. 29:11. I think it is the only verse in the bible that I know where it is and what number it is. I cringe when I read it. I cringe when I hear it or someone says it to me.

This past weekend on Saturday the verse was said FOUR times. FOUR FLIPPING TIMES! Each time it was harder to hear. Each time I rolled my eyes. I cried. Talk about not being receptive!

This morning I thought about it. ME. Not given to me, not read, not said. Well I guess God gave it to me. Guess there is hope for me after all.....

I am sorry Misty... I can tell you that I really know what you are feeling. If I only knew the plan for me... or if there even was a plan. This brings out all sorts of doubts and guilty feelings. Am I going against a plan? Am I trying to make my own? Who's voice am I sopposed to hear in the dark, I only here my own, feverishly trying to figure out the right direction to go.
