“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”

Isaiah 43:2

My childhood was not ideal. It wasn’t absolutely terrible, but it wasn’t great either. My coping mechanism (or what I thought was my coping mechanism) was to put up walls and just always expect the worst. I never allowed myself to have hope, because, well.. what was the point? People let me down, my family had issues and statistics alone told me I would never amount to anything. Depressing right?

My “coping mechanism” was actually destroying me. I could never see the good, never felt joy or peace and everything always had a negative. As I grew older and developed a relationship with God though, I realized that everyone has something they have had to deal with. Terrible things happen to other people, not just me.

This scripture tells us “WHEN you go through deep waters” We are not exempt from trials, and just life itself. Life will happen, but He is always with us, and that gives me so much hope and reassurance that everything is going to be okay.

As long as I have God with me, I will make it, and so will you!

I am so thankful today that You are always with me God. You stick closer than a brother, and Your word promises that You will never leave me nor forsake me. I will face things in this lifetime that I cannot handle on my own, but I will find my strength in You.

“So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.” Galatians 5:1 It’s been a week of celebrating freedom in Canada and the USA. I’m sure at one point or another we have each taken…

“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Romans 8:37 I love reading scripture in different translations! This verse for example breaks it down so simple for us. Despite anything this world may throw at us, we have OVERWHELMING victory. What an incredible thought…

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Matthew 21:22 Jesus told His disciples that He would answer every prayer that they prayed in faith. That same promise is for us today. But, I believe, that we must ask the Lord to direct our prayers…

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;” II Corinthians 1:3 When our children were small, many times they came to us for comfort. No matter what the problem they were having, they found being sheltered in…

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” Psalm 5:3 When we first wake in the morning, it is easy to start thinking about what day it is and what we must do or…
