God Encourages My Heart!

Pic quote Jeremiah 29 v 11

Something very encouraging and funny happened to me this morning.  The Lord spoke a very familiar verse to me that He has used many times during my time of suffering.  When I was first starting the blog earlier this year in August, I wrote a post about how He has used this verse in my life titled “Boomerang Blessing!”  The verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and the Lord just keeps using it to remind me that I am under His care and protection and that is very encouraging!

So, this morning I was looking through my Twitter notifications and I saw a new person had followed me.  This person is a Christian and wouldn’t you know it, the verse they chose to put along with the title of their account is Jeremiah 29:11 written out just like I have it in the Scripture pin above!  I just started laughing and praising God!  He wanted to make sure I knew that He is still with me and He has a plan!  Thank you Lord for continuing to use that verse in my life!  Amen!

When I saw that verse this morning, I immediately thought of the post “Boomerang Blessing!” because that is exactly what just happened to me again this morning.  I was hurting bad yesterday and I was not exactly thinking about Jeremiah 29:11, then this morning that same boomerang blessing comes flying into my heart to lift me up!  God is awesome how He encourages our hearts!

Boomerang Blessing!

Thank you to all of you for praying for me and thank you for reaching out yesterday!  I appreciate how you received my difficult post with grace and understanding.  The Lord is speaking many things to my heart.  A great sister in Christ I met here on WordPress when I first started the blog contacted me yesterday and she let me know that God impressed upon her to tell me that He is not angry with me.  It brought me to tears and the Lord moved in my heart in a new way that I am praying over and learning to rest in.  Thank you for listening to the Lord sister!  Thank you all for obeying the Lord!  I praise God for every word of encouragement and edification I received yesterday.  May His will be done!

May we never forget (that includes me) that God has an awesome plan for us and we can trust Him no matter what–even when we don’t understand!  God showed me last night before I went to bed that my questions do not bother or anger Him and they are not too difficult for Him.  He is glad I give Him my heart.  I am looking forward to seeing how God blesses and delivers us and I am looking forward to telling you all about it!  Let us never forget that He loves us and He will never leave us nor forsake us!

Grace and peace to you all!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

John 3:16

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

  1. Ryan, God is so pleased with you that it makes His heart swell with love whenever He looks at you (and His eye is ALWAYS on you!). I’m so glad you were encouraged by everyone’s prayers yesterday. Jeremiah 29:11 is a powerful promise for us to cling to during hard or uncertain times. He’s definitely got you! Blessings!
