The Greatest Companion

Star of Persia NBG -6-4-13 - 101_0171

I promise to: guide you along the best pathway for your life,
advise you, and watch over you1. Be with you in trouble2;
when you go through rivers of difficulty3; go before you and make the crooked places straight4.  I will strengthen and help you5;  send angels before you6; personally go with you7. I will sustain you8.  I never sleep9, so will you stop worrying and let me give you my beloved, sleep10? I will never leave you, nor forsake you11. If you allow me, I promise to be your God forever and ever12.

Heavenly Father, I pray that as we read these words from the Holy Scriptures, we will understand how much you desire to be our constant Companion, and refuse to live each day unless in total companionship with You.
In Jesus’ name,

Trust Me My Child

Canada Geese NBG -071715 -101_0819In certain situations,  trust is needed above every other aspect of Scripture. Who can understand the passing of a loved one, especially a mother? Am I alone in these devastating feelings of separation? At this point, I have nothing else to hold on or to trust, but the eternal Word of the Living God. Here are a few of the Scriptures that are helping me as I go through the grieving process.:

Be still and know that I am God.1 For you Lord have helped me and comforted me. 2  Sustain me  O God, according to Your promise.3  If I had not found encouragement in Your law, I would have died in my sorrow.4  Cast your cares on the Lord. He  will sustain you and He will never  let the righteous be shaken.5                                                
Have you been through troubling situations? Have words from the Holy Scripture also been your help?
