“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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-1
We are 1 day away from leaving 2016, an epic year of dramatic news and change. As we look towards 2017 for many the future is uncertain, for some there is exciting change ahead, for others the year ahead is more daunting.
What are your plans for 2017? Will it be a year of significant change? God says that He knows the plans He has for us and that they will give us a future and a hope. Let’s seek Him with ‘all our heart’ in 2017.
Spend a moment together sharing your hopes for the year ahead.
