No one, no circumstance can take this from you.....

This is a time in your life when you must learn to let go: of loved ones, of possessions, of control. In order to let go of something that is precious to you, you need to rest in My Presence, where you are complete.Take time to bask in the Light of My Love. As you relax more and more, your grasping hand gradually opens up, releasing your prized possession in My care. You can feel secure, even in the midst of cataclysmic changes, through awareness of My continual Presence. The One who never leaves you is the same One who never changes : I am the same yesterday, today and forever. As you release more and more things into My care, remember that I never let go of your hand, Herein lies your security, which no one and no circumstance can take from you.

Isaiah 41:13 For I am the Lord , your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.


I have experienced many times in my life when I needed this reasurrance from the Lord. I have believed in him since I was a child...trusting came easier then. As I moved into adult trials it came harder at times and sometimes not...always when I was not spending enough time basking in His word and with Him in prayer my security slipped but never left. Funny how you can think you have walked so far away from Him ...but when you return back.... He was there all along right beside you.

I always tell my troubled 30 yr old son this. "You walked away from God but He never walks away from us. He's still right there." He has a hard time with this one. My adult kids think it gets easier as you age to follow God. I always point out that it takes even more effort for me as I get physically and mentally worn easier. A new challenge.
Great post Jeane Thank You!
