From Jeremiah with love

I have not got the gift of preaching.
I feel humble and unworthy, when I talk about our Lord.
Those who know me, will assure you; I have got much to be humble about.
I have got a gift, though, to find a comforting word in the Bible, when I need it.
Today I found these words from Jeremiah 29, and felt it right to share them:
"11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 And ye shall call upon Me, and go, and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart. "

you do have that gift felisol. you have just helped me now.
i will go through this day with cheer..after reading this scripture.
felisol, i can never thank you enough for the encouragement you gave to my sonny who so needed lifting up after a couple people made such cruel remarks to him...he is a gentle soul.
do you know felisol that he was all prepared to go and see the queen last week?... but just before he did, an elderly lady he loved in his town passed away and so sonny stayed home to be with and help the sorrowing family?
thank you for visiting terry

Thank you for sharing that scripture. It's one that is always encouraging and one I've had brought to my attention again and again at times I especially needed to hear it!
I hope you don't mind me popping by, I saw your blog linked on Lidj's and saw you are in Norway too and thought I'd pay you a visit.:)
You have a lovely blog, I've enjoyed spending a bit of time reading here!

Dearest sister, I nee4ded your comforting gift very much today and you exersiced it well. Reading those words from the scriptures warms my heart. Thank you so much.

The photo of the cross is also so reassuring. To know Jesus died for me, so I can live. My salvation is secure in Him. In Him I have forgiveness of sins.
