"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand,
and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."
~ Isaiah 41:13 ~"I Take Thy hand, and fears grow still
Behold Thy face, and doubts remove
Who would not yield his wavering will
To perfect Truth and boundless Love!"

regret for the past and fear for the future."

"Without an end or bound
Thy life lies all outspread in light
Our lives feel Thy life all around,
Making our weakness strong, our darkness bright
Yet is it neither wilderness nor sea,
But the calm gladness of a full eternity."

"Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop." ~ Usman B. Asif ~

Let me as a child receive
What to-morrow may betide,
Calmly to Thy wisdom leave.
"Tis enough that Thou wilt care,
Why should I the burden bear?"
~ J. Newton ~
"There is much in the world to make us afraid. There is much more in our faith to make us unafraid." ~ Frederick W. Cropp ~

I'm breaking with tradition and ceasing "blessings" on Sabbath Keeping. Now, there will be a "Prayer Keeping" section; if you'd like your name, or initial, added to this list, please let me know either by commenting on this post or by a private e-mail. God knows you by name and knows your needs so just your name, added to each Sabbath Keeping post, will let me and others remember you in prayer. I still keep my private prayer list but will not post your name, or initial, publicly unless you request.
