Jeremiah 29:11 – “   For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for prosperity and
not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (NASB)
Matthew 5:16 – “You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you
may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at
its fullest, may see your devotion to Me, and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.”
