A Reminder

But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
"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.
Isaiah 43:1-2

I wanted to post this as a reminder today....

A reminder for friends who are facing difficult situations

A reminder for those who are hurting

A reminder for those who think it's too hard to keep going

A reminder that NO MATTER WHAT God is still on the throne

and He is still in control.

You may be walking through the waters, but the mighty Maker of the universe is with you. He has all the elements in His hand. He will see you through. Hang in there my friend. God's not finished with you yet!

For more encouragement this Word Filled Wednesday, please visit The Internet Cafe.

Thanks for stopping by my friends!

Just keepin' it real,

    great post, slicia. i have loved these verses and clung to them over the last 7 years and even before that. these promises are so dear to me. God is faithful, and now that we feel like we are thru the fire and the floodwaters are behind us, we can shout "Yes! God will be there with you and see you thru it!" He is awesome and marvelous and good!
