Jeremiah 45

CLICK HERE to read Jeremiah 45.

After Baruch has been so consistently faithful and diligent in helping record all of Jeremiah’s prophesies, even through much persecution and now captivity (verse 1), the Lord sends him a message through Jeremiah (verse 2). The Lord acknowledges how hard Baruch has worked, even without rest (verse 3). He reminds Baruch that the Lord Himself is in control, and will determine who is built up or broken down – individually or politically (verse 4). If he can believe this, Baruch can be confident in God’s plans to deliver him instead of worrying about enemies or being concerned when he falls out of political favor. The Lord promises to deliver Baruch, and to keep him safe (verse 5).

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
