Sunday Thoughts

"I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:9-10

God's promises are so precious. When we're struggling through something like recovering from surgery, or the loss of a loved one, or wondering how we're going to pay our latest bill, God's promises are there to see us through. We know that we can rely on Him to remember His promises. He tells us He remembers us. 

In this Scripture, He promises to strengthen and help us. I don't know about you, but I need that, especially right now. I have no strength of my own right now...I'm just beyond tired and exhausted. I'm so thankful that I can turn to God and ask Him for comfort to know that He is my help. 

It's so amazing to me that God says He will uphold me with His righteous right hand. How can I be of so much importance to him that He would lift me up? How is it that He loves me so much? It's just overwhelming and my heart just over-flows with the amazement and awesomeness of it all. 

God loves you with the same kind of love! Are you going through something difficult? Rest in Him. Remember, He is holding you in His hand. Nothing that is happening or has happened, has not gone through His hands first. He will bless us through these difficult times and we will come through more able to serve Him and help others! Oh - how I thank Him for this!

Have a very blessed Lord's day!

Blessings - Julie


  1. Good for you Julie! That's the spirit. That is EXACTLY what got me through my medical trials of last year. God bless you my friend.
