The Message

Sometimes reading a familiar verse in a new way can be eye opening...

"I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out - plans to take care of you, not abandon you - plans to give you the future you hope for.

When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen.

When you come looking for me, you'll find me.

Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed."

-Jeremiah 29:11-14 from The Message

I have not read The Message version but have several other versions and enjoy looking things up in different bibles. An old familiar passage just spoke completely differently to me as well - when I saw it in different verbage. :)
