Why did you stop at verse 10? Why didn't you read on?
Because the message continues after verse 10.
Jeremiah 29 verse 11++
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Isn't is possible that you're looking a little further from home? Is it or is it not possible that your husband has more opinions and thoughts about his job that he keeps private?
And don't you think God knows all these?
Tell you what. Why don't you just let your husband seek God for himself? Many times we are given verses and messages we do not understand. Each time, the best and most solid answer is to turn directly to God himself. As you say, this is your husband facing the trouble. No offense meant, but just sometimes, he may have to face the answer himself.
"...You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you." declares the Lord
