Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Even in the midst of discipline God wants His people to know that He has great plans for them. He loves them. He is not trying to finish them off or do away with them. Rather He is preparing them for the great plan that He has. God is at work in their lives.
God is working in your life. Sometimes it seems that He has left us. That is far from the truth. He promised to never leave us or forsake us. He has big plans. He is ready to do great things in our lives but we are not ready. He is working in and through us. He is working on us to get us to where He has planned.
We can rest assured that He is only doing what is best for us.
