Plans to Prosper

"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

It's that time of the year when we reflect on the past and plan for the future.  Time to make New Year's resolutions and learn from the mistakes of the past year.

The year 2011 has been a difficult one for many.....maybe you have lost a loved one, or maybe you lost a job or a home.  At the time - any of these circumstances may seem unbearable and harmful but in the long run God has a purpose for these difficult situations.  There is a reason and it is NOT to harm you - have faith in God and hope in the future.

I looked up the word "Prosper" - to thrive or succeed, grow in a vigorous way.  To become strong and flourishing.  "To grow and become strong" are not immediate and require some difficult times - We must endure hardships and cling to God and through that  "growth and strength" will be complete.

Do not worry - God is in control of 2012!  Our future is safe and full of hope! 
Happy New Year!
