For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
You may have this verse on your favorite coffee cup. We take it to mean something like, “Today, everything is going to go my way!” But is that really what it means in context? In this video, pastor and author, John Piper speaks to the true meaning of this beautiful verse and how we can rightly apply to our life today.
How different would our lives look if we valued our Bibles like this???

Man, this dude is gifted. Love acoustic guitar music. I watched him play and thought, I want to know the Word of God the way he knows his guitar. The instrument is like an extension of himself!

We Were Pharaoh’s Bondmen By: John Newton
Beneath the tyrant Satan’s yoke
Our souls were long oppressed;
Till grace our galling fetters broke,
And gave the weary rest.
Jesus, in that important hour,
His mighty arm made known;
He ransomed us by price, and pow’r,
And claimed us for his own.
Now, freed from bondage, sin, and death,
We walk in Wisdom’s ways;
And wish to spend our every breath,
In wonder, love, and praise.
Ere long, we hope with him to dwell
In yonder world above;
And now, we only live to tell
The riches of his love.
