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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. - Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
I love this promise. It comforts me when life doesn't make sense and when bad things seem to keep happening to me. You have good plans for me even when I cannot see what they are. So, I will pray to you just as you encourage me to. Lord, come and intervene in all those situations I'm concerned about. Give me what you want me to have and guide me through the difficult decisions I face. Take my hand and lead me to where you want me to go.

God won't forget the good plans he has for us even when we forget that he has them.
