Encouragement

I like fresh starts...everyday is a fresh start...the sun comes up and there is new hope. I thank God for each morning...for the sunrise and another day. These verses have gripped my heart...

"...Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior..." (Isaiah 43: 1b-3a)

POWERFUL...encouraging...having a hard time holding on? Are you wanting to quit...to give up?! REMEMBER THIS: "FEAR NOT, for I (the Lord) have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He has summoned us BY NAME AND WE ARE HIS! Rest in that today...I am.

Thank you for the scripture you have shared the last few posts. I have been looking for scripture to recite and keep perspective.
Your struggle has helped another. :)
