One night, years ago, when I was feeling so lonely, betrayed, abandoned....., I wandered into a Bible class at my church. I had not found a class I was happy in and had some issues with the teacher but, that night I was sent to that class by Someone who knew what was going on.

And there I found some of the most healing words possible for my situation. I was impossibly sad. And God sent me healing that night.

For a long time, I've wanted to share this message here. But I've been afraid to. And tonight is the night.

These words were written for the Israelites. But on a Wednesday night when I was desparate, they were read to me.....

From the New International Version of the Bible, I give you Proverbs 54:4-6.....

ISA 54:4 "Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

ISA 54:5 For your Maker is your husband--
the LORD Almighty is his name--
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
he is called the God of all the earth.

ISA 54:6 The LORD will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit--
a wife who married young,
only to be rejected," says your God.

Thanks Cinderella. [Smile] [Smile]

I had stumbled across that passage a couple of months ago while I was reading and when I went back I couldnt find it. Definately lifts the heart.

I've read that passage many times in the past weeks and continue to hold it close. It brings so much comfort to know the God of the whole universe has US in mind and looks to our needs, knows our hearts and our pain.
Last night I went and stood under the stars, it was VERY cold and VERY clear and I just said, "Your will, God, not mine or his, but Your Will."
Thanks for reminding me of that passage.
