Misunderstood

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb”.1 “I
love you with an everlasting love”2. At times, we may be
misunderstood. Words like these spoken from our Heavenly
Father through the prophet Jeremiah, reminds us that it would
be difficult for the One who knows and loves us to this degree,
to ever misunderstand us.
To me, that’s good news! What do you say?
