Jeremiah 29:11’s “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you, not to harm you…Plans to give you a hope and future”  played in my mind as I slept. In my subconscious, I told myself that I knew the verse. I recited it as my chant of hope whenever I felt like giving up. But, over and over it played, like a song stuck on repeat for some reason that was unknown to me. As if God wanted me to really get the meaning: that He had me. Safe and secured in His arms. That He was my shepherd and my provider.I may not have known the real reason why God woke me up with this beautiful verse this morning, but I knew He needed me to not let my faith fade away.

As I started to get ready for work, He again revealed to me all His promises to those who love and put their trust in Him through this one verse. This verse found me in my most discouraging moments and picked me up. This verse strengthened my faith every day. This verse put a wide smile on my face as I awakened from my sleep this morning, and it kept me happy and content the whole day. This verse gave me a renewed hope, brand new aspirations and the urge to tell the whole world about the unconditional and unfailing love of God.

***Just so you know, this is me being my typical self. I can never finish a challenge thoroughly. I always get side-tracked. I can’t explain why I do it, but I will blame it on my slight ADD.***

I am overwhelmed with so much guilt while writing this post. Wanna know why? Because I haven’t  read a book  in  4 years   a while. Before you go right ahead and judge me, I need you to hear me out.

I enjoy reading…I really do…but I haven’t really had the time to, because of the million and one activities I partake in. I know that’s not a good enough excuse, but it’s honest. The ideal time for me to read would have to be before I go to sleep, but I’m not going to lie to myself and say I would.

Besides my Bible (which I don’t consider as just a ‘book’) I have no other books that I’ve read that I can call a ‘favorite’. I have a few that I truly enjoyed reading but I wouldn’t classify them as my favorites.

I am still on the quest of discovering more books before I could call one my own ‘favorite’.

Feel free to send some suggestions my way. Thank you! 🙂
