Looking for a sign?

Seen at Holland Village:
The friends and I were amused to see this up, and agreed that while some people may really rejoice to see these words, it also could be an unfavourable sign for others.

We've had a piece of bad news recently. I'm still in a slight state of shock. Nothing life-threatening, so don't worry, for those who know me personally. But it is a blow, and coming at a very bad time, as we are coping with many changes in our lives. I am not prepared to share what this is all about, so please don't ask. Perhaps I will write about it, one day in the future :)

When I saw this sign, I couldn't help but think - What sign? Was I looking for a sign? And then, I should have looked for a sign, then this would have been it!
It was quite funny, the thoughts in my head. Although of course I have NOT been looking for any sign whatsoever, so the questions weren't relevant.

I just have deep convictions that God's plans are best for us. I rejoice in the many blessings that we have. And I relish a fresh lesson of what it means to trust, to have faith, and to obey.

Jeremiah 29:11
"I know what I am planning for you," says the LORD. "I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future" (NCV).

*Update:
So this is what finally happened, and we're so thankful!

will pray for Him to strengthen your faith in whatever situation u're facing. remember 1 Corinthians 10:13 - No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
