This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
Jeremiah 29:10-14 (NIV)
When I said I would not return to my job in the fall if it were configured the way it was in the spring, I knew not returning was a possibility. I knew that and I accepted that risk. While it is uncomfortable right now, I know it was the right choice. The waiting, the uncertainty, the changes…all part of the faith journey, the growth process. It is stretching me.
