    Hi,
    This Scripture has really helped me, and I hope it will help some of you, too. It is from "The Message" by Eugene H. Peterson. Isaiah 41: 10 & 13:

    Don't panic. I'm with you.
    There's no need to fear for I'm your God.
    I'll give you strength. I'll help you.
    I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.

    That's right. Because I, your GOD,
    have a firm grip on you and I'm not letting go.
    I'm telling you, 'Don't panic.
    I'm right here to help you.'

    It is also good to read from the New King James Version, too. It gives me hope.
    God bless you all,
    Joan

    Thank you for sharing. It was so good to hear in such down to earth words. There are times when I try too hard to pray formally. I know God hears us even when we pray in simple terms and it was good to have it reaffirmed through your post.

    One of my favorite passages...been feeling discouraged recently, and this reminded me of His promise.
