I remember, when I was desperately searching for a job and unsure of what my future held... I grasped to this verse:
"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 upon 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
What an awesome reminder to turn to God with anything and everything!
The verse that has been on my desk at work lately is this one:
"Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. Do everything with love."
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
I just love how we're encouraged to be strong and courageous in our faith, no matter the circumstances. And after such a bold charge... we're asked to do everything with love.
I love how the words courageous.... strong.. and love are all tied together in that verse... because loving the Lord and each other is our greatest charge on this Earth. And it almost always take a lot of courage to do that on our end, no matter what.
