I hope you all are doing well out there. I know I don't post here much, unless it is important. I just finished watching a youtube video of a powerful man of God, Ravi Zacharias. He encouraged me today that my struggle is not in vain, that we serve a real God and the Bible is the one true word of God.
I highly recommend you watch the video. Be warned, it's deep, very very deep. Some of it may go over your head. Heck, I've studied just a smudge of what he knows, and a lot of it still goes over my head. But his words still encouraged me regardless. I hope it encourages you all as well.
I leave you with this, the words of Jeremiah as he addressed the Exiles of Jerusalem:
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."
And further be confident that his plans will be completed:
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
