*A note before you read this. After doing an audit of my blog in 2022, I have decided to leave content that speaks to the Christian I was at the time this was written. I no longer identify as Christian (and haven’t for a very long time.) I chose to leave these posts because it is who I was then and it is important to me to be honest and true with every iteration and evolution of self that I experience. I may decide to add comments to the end of posts like this as well

I had a thought that I should pick Jeremiah 29:11-13 and pushed the thought aside because I know the verses. So I asked on Twitter and @LisaReid said, “I’d have to go with Jer 29:11, or 11-13. It stands out like a gem against the rest of the book, always surprising me.”
Uh-huh. Surprise. Surprise, eh?
So I told her I’d thought those where the verses I should do, but hesitated instead, so this was a “Here’s your sign” moment. She said, “Ha! I almost didn’t reply to you, but I really felt that I should. So yes, here’s your sign. Dooo eeeet!”
So it looks like I’ll be spending from now until Mid-May on this passage. I’ll do one verse for each 2-week period.
For I know the plans I have for you—[this is] the LORD‘s declaration—plans for [your] welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.Jeremiah 29:11-13
