Encouraging Words

Jesus Calling
Keep your eyes on Me! Waves of adversity are washing over you, and you feel tempted to give up. As your circumstances consume more and more of your attention, you are losing sight of Me. Yet I am with you always, holding you by your right hand. I am fully aware of your situation, and I will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able to bear.
Psalm 73:23; I Corinthians 10:13
Excerpt from the devotion for February 27th from the book
Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

A Friend in the Storm
When it feels like life has failed you
and your mind's been cast in war,
please remember Love's forever;
I will pass you through this door.
You don't cry alone in battle,
even when you think you've lost.
Please believe this truth, My winner:
Heaven paid your victor cost.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18
Excerpt from the devotional gift book A Friend in the Storm by Cheryl

God Will See You Through
Sometimes it's hard to see through our tears.
But even when we can't see, God has promised to be there - loving us,
strengthening us, giving us what we need to face each day.
No matter what happens, God will hold you close and see you through
because you are so precious to Him.
God cares, cares right down to the last detail.
James 5:11 The Message
