Trust in God, that no matter how hard and difficult everything is right now, the Lord will be by your side, he will protect you and give you a bright future.
For I know the plans
and thoughts that I have for you
—says the Lord—
plans for peace and well-being
and not for affliction,
to give you a future and a hope.
Many times we find that our future is uncertain,
that our present is troubled,
that we do not know how to move forward,
that there are not many reasons
to have hope in the future.
But God is with us,
his thoughts and plans
are of great blessing.
He wants us well,
he wants to give us a good well-being,
he wants to assure us a future,
he wants to give us hope.
Let us therefore trust in God,
and let us seek to do all that he asks of us.
To do good, to do right,
and not to stop trusting
in the Lord our God,
who loves us so much
and blesses us so abundantly.
