For I am mindful of the plans I have made concerning you ~ declares the Lord ~ plans for your welfare, not for your disaster, to give you a hopeful future. When you call Me, and come and pray to Me, I will give heed to you. You will search for Me and find Me, if only you seek Me wholeheartedly. I will be at hand for you ~ declares the Lord ~ and I will restore your fortunes. And I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places I have banished you ~ declares the Lord ~ and I will bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you. (Jeremiah 29.11-14)
Who gives us more knowledge than the beasts of the earth,
Makes us wiser than the birds of the sky?
. . . Surely it is false that G-d does not listen,
That Shaddai does not make note of it!
. . . The case is before Him; so wait for Him.
Joyfully shall you draw water
From the fountains of triumph,
And you shall say on that day:
“Praise the Lord, proclaim His name.
Make His deeds known among the peoples,
Declare that His name is exalted.”

I [the Lord] will bestow My blessings upon you,
and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven
and the sands on the seashore. . .
Grass withers, flowers fade ~
But the word of our G-d is always fulfilled!
