I’m here with the first post in my new series and I’m so excited to share it with y’all! As I said last week, I will be discussing pieces of Scripture every Monday, and to kick things off, I thought I’d start off with what I think is a pretty well known verse!
Isaiah 41:10 — “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthing you and help you, I will uphold you with My right hand of rightousness.” (KJV)
This is a verse that I have ready in my head to quote to myself should the need ever come. I tend to be someone who worries a lot and I can easily get stressed out over life events. This year has been a hard year for pretty much everyone. Graduations have been cancelled, thousands upone thousands of people have lost theirs jobs. People have been forced to quarantine alone, which is something I can’t imagine doing.
There’s been so many disappointments and fears that we’ve all had to face this year, and I think this verse is something we should hold onto, besides others. I can think of lots of other ones, but I will save those for the next few weeks!
We don’t have to be afraid, because God has us and He works all things for good. We can trust in Him to take care of us and we can cast all of our worries on Him. I know it’s hard. I have struggled with it so much even to the point where I began to not trust in Him. I went for quite awhile without trusting Him because I was given so many reasons of why I shouldn’t. Thanks to the help of friends, I am glad to say I am past that, but it is still a difficult thing to do to put our trust in something we can’t see.
But I promise you, I have experienced myself that He is indeed there, and I pray that you all can put your fears and worried on Him because He is strong enough to hold it all.
God bless all of you and have a wonderful week!
