I Will Be With You

The Lord himself will go before you and will be with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.
Deut. 31:8

If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. - I know O Lord, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for a man to direct his steps. The LORD delights in the way of the man whose steps he has made firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand. I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. - For I am convinced that neither death nor life. neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height not depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ex. 33:15 Jer. 10:23 Pss. 37:23-24; 73:23-24 Rom. 8:38-39

I believe truly as you do that my life is not my own. He loved me enough to create me. Now, what I do with this life should mirror that love. There are days when that mirror is so smudged I can't see myself. Thank God for his forgiveness. And so 2008 begins. Happy Day. Cathy

Mike, what wonderful verses you have chosen to share with us today! I am deeply moved when I remember how my Lord goes before me, stands with me, and that He will never forsake me. Thank you for that reminder as we face this new year. With all the questions of what may come, one thing I know..He is with me. Praise HIM. Thank you!
