When Jeremiah 29:11 Just Don't Cut It

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees.**

This week’s posts are dedicated to all of our readers who have read Jeremiah 29:11 (“For I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”), a popular “promise” verse from the Bible, and thought:

That is just not true for my life.

You’ve been walking through the rubble of what was once a life that made sense. You’ve been searching for something that survived the earthquake intact. Whatever the cause of the tremor, your hopes, dreams and expectations for life, have crumbled around you. Your prayers to repair them have been met with a deafening silence, despite what the “scriptures of promise” have to say. Hoping to exhume something to build on, you dig through your disaster area and find that only thing remains whole. It’s Him. He’s sitting there, on top of your rubble, offering his company, but nothing more.

It is at this point that I humbly place a question before you. When you’re kicking through the rubble of your life, and all you find is Jesus…is He enough?

Be honest with your answer. It could be a powerful game-changer for your faith.

This week, meet four people whose lives led them to answer this question with a courageous “yes”.

Game on.
