Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 29:1-14 (Day Three) 
“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile.”  If it’s good, it’s from God.  If it’s bad, it’s from…God?  Can it be?  It’s not uncommon to call things bad if they cause us discomfort.  But our comfort has never been the gauge that God uses to determine whether or not something will benefit us.  When things go bad, it’s often for our good, and this cannot be overstated.  God has not lost track of you, even in the deepest recesses of difficulty.  It is often God who in fact carried you there.  And because he has not abandoned you, hope lies ahead.
