#Future

“This verse, quoted to countless individuals who are struggling with vocation or discerning God’s will, is not written to individuals at all. This passage is written to a whole group of people—an entire nation. For all the grammarians out there, the “you” in Jeremiah 29:11 isn’t singular, it’s plural. And you don’t have to be a Hebrew scholar to realize that “one” versus “many” is a big difference,”  according to Thom Turner, program manager at International Justice Mission. He is a graduate of Rutgers University (MA in English) and Cairn University (BS English Ed., BS Bible), and blogs at THIS LINK.

Turner further adds: “And the verse just before it is perhaps even scarier. For in Jeremiah 29:10, God lays down the specifics on this promise: that He will fulfill it after seventy years are completed for Babylon. In other words, yes, God says, I will redeem you—after 70 years in exile. This is certainly a far cry from our expectation of this verse in what God’s plans to prosper us really mean. He did have a future and a hope for them—but it would look far different than the Israelites ever expected.”

Despite this admonition and prompt to clarity on the now amplified verse, millions of Bible followers still take much solace from the verse for their personal lives while reading into this text the Lord's hope for a brighter future.  If you are among those who would like to capture that sentiment in a larger than life way, you may wish to visit our AMAZONE LINK.

Thus, it is my pleasure to admit that my recent introduction and use of ESSENTIAL OILs comes as a result of and in relief of my chronic bouts of bronchitis…

In good company

Although I am more than 12 years into the post-cancer (mantle cell lymphoma) diagnosis (DX) and confirmed, sustained remission (since 2010), I have not always been faithful about periodic and routine updates at this site (Blog For A Cure), but making an archive link of the above story prompts this update.
