This post is dedicated today to a classmate of mine, Shanda, whose little girl Shayln was born premature two years ago and went to meet Jesus last night.

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  I am your God.  Lay your weary head on my shoulder, child.  I will comfort you and wipe away your hurting tears. I can see your pain.  My compassion will not fail you today.

Your current circumstance may be causing you to doubt My love and to question My plans.  Find truth in this statement: I AM love. I am your shepherd and I carry My lambs close to My heart.  I treasure you, precious one. Seek refuge in My love during your times of trouble.  Because I have even overcome Death.

Let your tears fall.  Your weeping and mourning will take time.  But, rejoicing will come. My love never ceases and great is My faithfulness. I am with you today - every day - wherever you might go.

-Isaiah 43:2, 1 John 4:17, Isaiah 40:11, John 16:33, Psalm 30:5, Lamentations 3:22-23, Joshua 1:9

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
