Jeremiah 29:12

This is the scripture from Christian Women Online today. While I love the poetic feel of the King James Version, I always refer to the New Living Translation when I'm studying (I need that easy read quality the NLT provides).

So I wanted to add to the daily quote from CWO by quoting from the NLT version that I read. I pray this will reach you, in whatever your situation, as it did me. It reminds me of the promise in being faithful to the Lord and is one of my favorite verses . . .

Jeremiah 29:11-14
"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. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. I will be found by you," says the Lord. "I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and bring you home again to your own land."

I love the New King James Version. When I'm writing a historical, I reference the original KJV. I find it interesting how we gravitate to different versions.
