“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” (Jeremiah 29:11).  In the midst of the challenges you may be facing in your life, we hope that as you worship this morning you will be reminded that God is for you.  And as you trust Him he will, in his time, weave together his good plan for your future.
