Something wasn't working...

Day 20: Plans of HOPE

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)

Hope is one of my favorite words.

It has brought me through several seasons of trial, including the health battles of our oldest daughter.

Many of you know the story of hereditary spherocytosis...in short, we didn't know what was happening with our little girl for about 18 months. We knew something wasn't working...but we didn't know if it was cancer or something else.

I had moments of doubt...moments of fear...but overall, moments of hope.

Without hope, I wouldn't have made it through!

And hope is one of God's special promises...a future and a hope. I love that.
