The Wind and The Waves

"But now, God's Message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,
   the One who got you started, Israel:
"Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
   I've called your name. You're mine.
When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you.
   When you're in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you're between a rock and a hard place,
   it won't be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
   The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you:
   all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
That's how much you mean to me!
   That's how much I love you!
I'd sell off the whole world to get you back,
   trade the creation just for you." Isaiah 43:1-4 The Message

No matter how turbulent the wind and the waves are in your life, HE is faithful to see you through. Stand on HIS promises and never let go!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,




With praise and thanksgiving for His love and mercy. Never letting go.

Thank the Lord, He is always faithful, even when we are not! Sometimes we feel that the waves are about to sink us under and then He lets us know that He hasn't forsaken us! Great feeling!

"The waters encompassed me to the soul:
The deep was round about me ..."

The Lord has been for us to greater depths than we will ever know; praise His Name!

Oh, amen, Andrea. I really needed to hear this today. Last night I couldn't fall asleep - I was up until 3:30 AM. And the enemy was having some fun with my thoughts...

God calmed me - He spoke to the wind of swirling lies, He stilled the waves of turbulent worries.

He said, "I am there with you..."

PRAISE HIM! And God Bless you!
