Suffering

But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;

I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

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.

-Isaiah 43:1-2

Where did you get that last picture? It is so hauntingly beautiful and fits that verse so perfectly. We sing that psalm to music at church and it's one of my favorites. Thanks for this lovely, encouraging post.

Love ya! Sniz

I was sad to hear the news when my mom told me earlier today. Your family will be in our prayers.
