... a voice speaks truth to my soul.
"God does not abandon us when we experience hardship and suffering but offers us comfort and hope.
Gracious God, thank you for continuing to speak to us when we forget that you are with us. Amen."*
While I contemplate these truths I receive another in the form of an e-card and again I am gently reminded that:
God is Hope. "May the God of hope fill you with peace... as you trust in Him" (Rom 15:13)
God is Comfort. "Through Christ our comfort overflows" (2 Cor 1:5)
God is with us. "Do not fear for I am with you... I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you." (Isa. 41:10)**
and my heart can find peace.... for once again I am able to "be still and know".
