GOD is Good!


Our Last Pastor would many times start out before a sermon..."GOD is Good", and then our congregation would reply...."ALL the TIME GOD is good!" Well..that's just how I feel right now.

Amidst the storms of Life...God really does sustain. I want all who left me comments recently to know HOW much your kinds words of encouragement and said prayers really mean. I may not know how just yet my families situation will turn out but I do know GOD is right beside, going through it with me. It comforts to know there are others who can truly empathize because they have lived it too!

I have a verse I'd like to share that has been my constant these past few days.

Isaiah 43:2,3a

When you pass through the waters,
I will be with You;
and when you pass through the rivers,
They will NOT sweep over you.
When You walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze

FOR...I AM the LORD, your GOD,

This just says to me that no matter what I am going through GOD says it will NOT over take me. I Love how he states HE Is the LORD!!! My Lord and my God!

Blessings...Lorena

Oh my goodness. That is absolutely one of my favorite verses in the Bible, and it has seen me through much adversity. God bless you for taking the time to share it.
