Do not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by name, you are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)He has known us long before we drew breath, and created us with purpose.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. (Jeremiah 1:5)He is a God who will never leave us.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:20)He is a God who doesn’t seek our perfection as a condition of His love.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)He is a God of endless mercy and new beginnings.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)And in case you need a little something on repeat through the day, this prayer from a revelation of Christ to Julian of Norwich is a favorite of mine:
All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.Copyright 2019 Rakhi McCormick. All rights reserved.[/caption] So ... take a deep breath. Get those feet on the floor. Grab a cup of coffee, and face the day knowing you are not alone in your struggles, and you are doing better than you think.
