God helped me when I was defenseless and fearful in the innocence of my childhood. In doing so, He revealed to me the compassion of His mercy. The Lord is faithful to the innocent as well as the righteous.
Although people of the world still see bad things happen to good people, they are blind to the hand of God that causes all things to work according to His purpose. They cannot fathom how God tempers His children to give them a hope like no other.
With the strong friend whom I have in Jesus, I do not feel weak when I would otherwise face injustice alone in fear. God knew and cared for me long before I came of age and accepted Him. I trust Him to not fail me now.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want!
“…the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.’” – Matthew 18:1-4 (ESV)
My purpose for this blog, my first book, and all else are purely for the means to further share the hope of my life that, in faith, has sustained me. My utmost desire is to do the good works that God would have us all do to lift one another up.
