It is written: The thoughts that God thinks toward you and me are to give us an expected end. Note these thoughts are not about us, but are directed toward us, and have substanse. Using our free will and choosing to correctly respond to them will result in God'sexpected end. Which is our receiving the fullness of God and the oneness with Him and each other to develop, or mature us to enter the ultimate joy of eternal life with Him.
(Read Jeremiah 29:11)
