- A Future With Hope: Jeremiah 29:11-13
11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. 12 Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. 13 When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart,
The Lord has plans for us that I was not even aware of; plans to give me HOPE for the future. Plans to overcome despairs, fears, and anxieties over what the future might bring. I searched for his wisdom through prayer, for His guidance, and realized He was always there and with me. I was never alone, and now I know He will be with me forevermore.
Without Hope and a future, I found myself lost in a deep black hole that enveloped me and I could not climb out and see the light again; paralyzing thoughts and images, but very real. I felt completely devastated, consumed and overshadowed by the evil that had surrounded me. I worried about loved ones, their needs, and selfishly my own needs. I called on His help over and over again. When I stopped to really listen, I heard and felt His presence. He made me realize that there is always HOPE and with HOPE, a FUTURE. All we need to do is look and seek.
Dear Lord, I have passed another day, and thank you for your care. As darkness deepens, help me see the Hope and Future yet to come. Amen.

We are all in need of HOPE, now more than ever, so this devotional revolves around the theme of “A Future with Hope”.
In keeping with this year’s theme, which is from the book of Jeremiah, we chose only a handful of texts from both the Old and New testament (12 to be exact) that speak directly to Hope. We thought it would be interesting to see/read a number of different perspectives on the same text, just as it is for scholarship, sermons or bible studies on the same texts.

We will be updating the site as we schedule events. For now, please shelter at home and pray to ‘flatten the curve’ and do what we can to keep others and ourselves free from harm.
