What does it mean….

when the Lord keeps drawing you to the same verse over and over???
At Spiritually Unequal Marriage…Lynn is hosting our Thankful Thursday (thank you Lynn!!) and her verse is THE VERSE! The one that He keeps directing my brain to….the one that keeps coming from the tip of my pen when I am writing a note to someone….it is the one that He wants us to KNOW and REALIZE!

Jeremiah 29:11 “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.

Now do you suppose He has a reason? Of course He does! He is interested in EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of our lives. For that I am so thankful. He is right now watching over my sweet sister in the hospital…He is watching over us as we ready ourselves for bed….He is there with you as you sit and read these posts….He is with you as you travel, work, play,……breathe. Every breath. Every time. Whether the breath is a struggle…or easy. He is there. We aren’t promised ease….but we are promised that He will never leave us nor forsake us….He’s there to the end.

I am thankful for the ideas He pours into my heart and life. I am thankful for my family….the in-laws and out-laws….all of them. (Just kidding on the out-laws—that’s the ones “running from God.)

I am thankful for sleep and waking again. I am thankful for kind friends and bloggity buddies who take my needs onto their hearts as if it were their own family. I am thankful for interceding prayer warriors (Mama Doodle, thank you), and many other faithful church family who are right now interceding on my family’s behalf. You are precious.

I am thankful for you….for you faithfully visit here and offer encouragement….that is so precious to my heart. You have no idea how much you mean to me.

Visit with Lynn and the others for more “thankfulness” today.
