  1. jer 28:11 (new living translation)
    “For i know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

  2. Cyndi, yes we have hope for the future! Thank you for contributing the verse from Jeremiah. BTW, i think the way you spell your name is cool B-).

  3. Psalm23.4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

  4. 10 ‘Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. – [Rev 3:10 NASB]

  5. Nice reference to the church in Philadelphia. What’s interesting is that it says, “for thou hast a little strength” but still the believers persevered in spite of that. And we know that perseverance comes from the grace of God.

  6. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secrect of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me upon a rock. Psalm 27:5.

  7. Thanks for the verse from Psalms, very appropriate to the topic. If we believe that things happen with God’s providence according to His will, we know that even in the times of trouble His mercy can give us the stability of a strong rock.

  8. And the gift (grace) is not like that which came through the one who sinned (Adam). For the judgment which came from one offense (Adam’s offense) resulted in condemnation (for us all), but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification. For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:16-17. NKJ version

  9. I love this quote and actually shared it with a friend earlier today as she has four little girls, her husband has got transferred to work two states away and she is trying to pack up their house for the move. She’s feeling overwhelmed and was so appreciative of this quote. It has gotten me through many tough times along with lots of prayer!

  10. ALL of this is IN THE BIBLE!!!!!!! But not chronological the way this beautiful poem is written! It is scattered throughout the Bible and the most awesome experience is to dig in and find it for YOURSELF!!!!!! AWESOMENESS! Might take you some time….but time WELL SPENT!!!

  11. I first heard this quote in a song by Jake Hess. I have used it time and time again and love it. “Faith is the key to Heaven; but, prayers unlocks the door”.

  12. this is so wonderful we all can share the words of the LORD and have saying to keep us going toward his words
