This verse reminds me of the constant presence of God in our lives. He knows every detail of our lives and loves us beyond what we can imagine. It reminds me that we must trust in Him on our journey through both joyous and trying times. He is preparing us for our eternal future with Him.

Jeremiah 29:11 - '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.'
