“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.” NIV

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” KJV

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” NKJV

Jeremiah 29:11

I was looking up this particular verse today and decided to look up different translations. I am by no means a Bible scholar, but all three translations have a little different meaning. Since I cannot read Hebrew and do not know the history of translation quite as well as I do the Bible, looking up Hebrew transliterations was no help either.

Regardless of the translation, Jeremiah 29:11 provides a candle of light in the darkness. Because the LORD sent this message through his prophet Jeremiah to those He carried into exile from Jerusalem into Babylon.

Have you ever felt exiled?

Far away from family?

Mired in grief?



Not knowing which way to go or who to turn to?

Read the verse above -whichever translation resonates with you at the present moment.

Then turn to God.

Pour out your heart.

The God who made the universe, love, light, and all creation will listen…

and light will flood your soul.
