Encouragement for Today

NEVER, EVER?

I do not like spiders. At all. Any kind, any shape, any size.

Surgery and hospital stays? Forget about it!

The little guy started a new school in a new town…the butterflies in his stomach feel real.

And of course the obvious…. the state of our world with all the terrorism….and all “stuff” that clogs our news feeds!

There are many things that make us a bit fearful. But Hebrews 13:5-6 tells us something that is so important when we are experiencing these changes.

Hebrews 13_5-6

The word NEVER is one of my favorite in these scriptures. It translates to a word that is five times more powerful than it appears. In other words…NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER will He leave you! LEAVE means to leave behind, abandon, send back, disregard.

So that scripture is really:
“Never, never, never, never, never will I abandon you or leave you in a helpless state!!

I don’t know how that makes you feel friends, but that brings much comfort into this heart.Psalm 69_19

 

 

Even if you don’t “feel” Him, He is there….in the midst of the fear, the change, the pain. Trust His word…….

I still don’t like spiders, but at least I know I am not alone in that room with it!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
