"Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which  I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah." { Jeremiah 33:14}

 While I was visiting, working, etc. in Chicago, I took pictures of beautiful flowers all over the city. My daughter now lives in an area called Andersonville, and everyone takes great pride in there gardens. Flowers even grew between the stretch of dirt between the sidewalk and the street!
Every home was kept neat and swept clean. Many families with young children were everywhere and if they didn`t have a child, they had a dog. Most of the buildings were 100 years old. I have never lived in a city, and I have never seen anything like this.

Our verse today does not stand alone. When you get a chance, read the entire chapter and you will see what I mean. God has redeemed His people so very many times through out the course of mankind.
In Jeremiah`s day, this verse was speaking of the coming Messiah who had been promised since the beginning of time. We live in a day when we can benefit from the truths that our Messiah brought.
These people could hold on to the promises but they didn`t see the fulfillment like we can! Grab hold of God`s truth for yourself today! He will surprise you with such wonderful things that you cannot imagine!
If you were not able to be with us on Tuesday night to hear the message that Lysa Terkeurst gave about her newest release, "Uninvited"Living Loved when you feel Less Than, Left Out and Lonely, You can view it at The DVD that accompanies this book was filmed in Israel at appropriate sites that coincide with each chapter. You do not want to miss these classes that start in September at 10:30 Sunday mornings at SGT. This is a class for women only, but our men folk can read along as we study at home. I hope every one of you can join us!
