Thought of the Day !!

When 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. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
                                                                             Isaiah 43:2-3 (NIV)

We are precious in God's sight.  He promises to be with us through the troubling times in our lives and to lead us out of them if we will allow Him to.  This is one of the greatest promises that God offers not abandon us.  People often times abandon Him.  But even in the case of those, He never forgets them and accepts them back if they wish to come.

As His children, we should emulate this kind of behavior.  I once knew a lady that didn't care much for the Church.  That is, until her father was on his death bed.  When she saw how her parent's church members gathered around, supporting and showing love to the family, she was changed.  And she began going to that church.  In her deepest hours of need, she found something out about God.  She found out that He would never abandon her.  Our God is not opposed to presenting Himself in tangible ways.  You might not hear Him speak through a burning bush, but you just might through other people.

Life is supposed to be about relationships with God and each other.  It can be as long as we realize that God will not abandon us...and we commit ourselves to never abandoning Him or each other.

In the love of Christ,
