…on passing through the waters…

It’s really late & Virginia the Blogger has been Out All Day (& Evening) so here are a few Favorite Verses that Help when the waters of difficulties pound the shores of our lives…

Niagara Falls (from underneath) VLW

Niagara Falls (from underneath) VLW

“But now thus says the Lord, He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel:  Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour. “ Isaiah 43:1-3

Tel Aviv sunset (2)The thing about our faith – even when pounded by the gushing waters of life’s challenges, as pain & heartbreak threaten to drown the love in our hearts & overwhelm our joy – God HAS redeemed us, each one, & calls us by our Name: 

BELOVED OF GOD

Thus we can walk through the waters – gushing, rushing, pushing – & not be overwhelmed  with God at our side strengthening us to face the tide…

grace, peace & redemption
