"’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord.  ‘Plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.’"  Jeremiah 29:11

In 1994, when I was in the middle of making major career changes, a young friend gave me this familiar scripture beautifully framed.  I had helped bring her into a new and fuller life in Jesus.  She knew that I was hopeful, yet fearful, of change.  How comforting it was to read these words and trust that I was within His plans.

Then my ex-husband asked for a divorce in 1996, stating that my career decisions were instrumental in his unhappiness.  It was a horrible, hurting, angry and lonely time.  Divorce was not a change I had chosen!  I questioned many things but continued to believe God’s promise of a good future whether I was single or married.

Within the pain and confusion, I drew close to God as I sought healing, forgiveness and growth within this new life.  It was difficult, but I had God, wonderful support from family, old friends, new friends, therapy and divorce recovery.  A year later I was sharing His joy and promises with others who were dealing with divorce.

I continued to trust and grow.  In 1999 I married a wonderful man who delights in me and my faith.  This is God’s good plan for us.
