I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

His Word Sunday

You've got to read it all!

Do you have a favorite verse?  It's the kind of verse that you say to yourself often.  The verse you give friends when they need that something special to make it through the day - or a particular situation.

It's the verse that's not only highlighted but underlined and has extra notes in the margin of your Bible.

But today I was reminded to not forget the verses that lead up to that favorite verse - as well as the verses that come after it.

Here's one of mine - with the before and after - which spoke to me today:

Jeremiah 29:10-14 (ESV)
For thus says the Lord: 
When seventy years are completed for Babylon, 
I will visit you, and I will fulfill to you 
My promise and bring you back to this place.

For I know the plans I have for you,
 declares the Lord, plans for welfare 
and not for evil, 
to give you a future and a hope,

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, 
and I will hear 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, 
and I will restore your fortunes 
and gather you from all the nations 
and all the places where I have driven you, 
declares the Lord, and I will bring you back 
to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Did you see all the things He will do for us when we call on Him?  Even through He once exiled us?  What a picture of REDEMPTION!!!
