COME TO JESUS ~ Wednesday

Good Morning!

Well..I have been away for a few weeks. I had a quick decision to make 3 weeks ago to come visit my folks in the Seattle area and ended up missing 2 Wednesdays...then I don't do the adjustments coming home well and have come down with the flue or cold. But today, even tho I am late getting this in I wanted to contribute.

With the recent Gloom and Doom of our economy and Wall Street and in my own life the loss of a job for my hubby I draw comfort daily from my Lord. I know that these are just storms in life that we go through. And I also know who is holds my hand all the way. So I found this verse today about God's unfailing love that is all around me and you and wanted to share it with you.

Isaiah 54:10
"Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed."
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

WOW, those words really hit home for me. Our world is being shaken up right now..but GOD has an unfailing love for you and me. I love that through all of this he promises a covenant PEACE. A peace that can pass any of our own understanding. And to know that GOD has compassion for us is just priceless.

Hi Lorena!
Great scripture! So powerful and reassuring, and we all need that!!
I've been catching up on visiting and I LOVE your master bedroom! It looks so beautiful and relaxing. Your curved furniture pieces and the antique mirror are gorgeous!
The TV is always a problem in decorating isn't it? I tried covering one in my French room with vintage linens but it just ended up looking like a TV with doilies on it LOL! If it was sitting on something larger I would have tried disguising it with shutters but then would have an accident problem waiting to happen to guests!! So I guess I have no good solution!
Hugs, Sherry

What beautiful scripture. :) That whole chapter saw me through some pretty rough spots. :) He is so Faithful and Wonderful I cant believe the whole world isn't down on their faces before Him. :) Praying for you both, sweet friend. :)
