Grateful Friday

I am grateful. I am.

I am grateful for good friends...as always. This has been such a difficult season, and I know I sound like a broken record, but I would not be breathing if it weren't for the precious souls the LORD has provided to come alongside me.

I'm so grateful that the LORD is with me, just as He promised.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deut. 31:6)

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deut 31:8)

No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Joshua 1:5)

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. (Psalm 9:10)

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)

Thanks, Liz. I'm grateful for those things you've listed above and for the privilege of being your friend. For seeing the fruits of the spirit emanate from your humbleness in the face of ungodly,unrighteous,mean-spirited actions from those who claim Yeshua as Master. I'm grateful for the Ruach HaKodesh who reveals all things in His own timing.
