Do you find yourself in a constant state of planning? Plans for what we will have for supper, plans for our day-to-day activities, plans for a vacation, plans for your future? One of my favorite bible verses is from Jeremiah 29:11 which says, "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 a hope and a future."  As we get busy making our plans, it is such a marvelous reassurance to know that the God of the Universe, the One who formed you and knew you before you were born, has a plan for you!

That is such amazing news.  

God sent his only Son Jesus Christ to save YOU, (Yes, YOU!) from your sin and to give you a promise of forgiveness, salvation, and eternity with him forever. He has called by name, he has chosen you to be His beloved child. 

No matter where you come from, no matter what you have done, no matter your long list of regrets...God has a very special plan for you. God, our Precious Father, loves you and has chosen you to be his beloved child. 

Jesus Christ has given you great hope and a bright future. May the joy and peace that comes through the victory in Jesus Christ continue to propel you to find new ways to be a blessing to our neighbors and this community. 

Joy and peace in Christ Jesus, 

Pr. Renae Behrends
