fear not, for I have redeemed you,
I have called you by NAME;
you are mine...
Isaiah 43:1

He made us, and we are His.

And I will give you a new heart,
and a new spirit I will put within you.
And I will remove the heart of stone
from your flesh
and give you a heart of flesh.

He will keep you



"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I WILL KEEP YOU and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles."
Isaiah 42:6

 "Surrendering the safety of the deck chair, she cautiously approaches the pool's edge.
His irresistible voice calls her to come closer.
As the distance between them wanes, another more menacing voice whispers,
"can you be so sure that He will catch, much less keep you?"
For a moment, she entertains the thought of her feet leaving the ground beneath only to be met with water--no firm hands to grab her.
Sweetly, a whisper interrupts the vision,
"He is strong and He is good. He will not only catch you, He will keep you."
The only courage she finds is when her eyes are locked on His.
Though the doubts linger, they are drowned out by His beckoning.
Her toes dangle.
Her knees bend.

She jumps."

oh, to run after the Lord with such abandonment to all the things of this world.
