Only God Knows

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV) Only God knows what His purpose and plan is for your life. Some false prophets and preachers might preach the "hell, fire, and brimstone" version of God, but that is NOT God's way. God's way is one of of peace, love, and hope. God WANTS us to be at peace, with ourselves and with each other, and He wants us to be successful and thrive. He does not want to condemn us for our sins. That is why Jesus died on the cross in our place. In addition, we live through God's GRACE and love for us, not solely based on what we do. It's not enough that we do and be good, but we have to seek God's forgiveness and grace. Finally, it's a very bad idea to try to outthink, outsmart, or second guess God. Only He knows how he thinks and feels. That is why it's ALWAYS a good idea to follow his direction and ways. He can see things we can't. And, God only wants the best for us! Love, Beau
