‘I don’t know what I’m thinking. Except that I want terrible things to happen to you and for you to be miserable until the day you die.’

That statement is in direct contrast to “for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end”.

But sometimes we allow our emotions to override what we know to be true and begin acting as if the first statement is true. 

But no matter where you are in your life it never is. God is ever-present, guiding us, loving us, bringing the best for us. We can rest easy when we believe and live according to the Word.
