To break down the courage of completely, as by sudden danger or trouble; dishearten thoroughly..
“So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand…”
What beautiful words to a heart full of fear… worry, or regret.
These tender and comforting words have become the cornerstone of my faith. As I look back at the times of panic in my life; God has recalled these words to my heart over and over again… How precious and needed they have been.
Dismay, fear, sadness and sometimes regret; are all feelings that lead to a sense of hopelessness, but God in His sweet goodness seeks our hearts and knows our thoughts… He pours His truth in and covers our pain with His soothing words of comfort and hope…
What amazing grace for sure!
Oh, Lord, how I thank you for your words of truth. You search us and know us. You, Dear Heavenly Father, are always the first to reach out and draw us into Your loving arms.. May our hearts be bent toward You… Not fearful. Not angry. But ready to grab Your hand of grace with conviction and hope, in our weakness You are strong. Thank You for being my rock and redeemer.. my friend, and my ally… I couldn’t imagine doing life without Your beauty, strength and grace..
How I love You, Jesus
“Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you..”

” For in the day of trouble He will keep you safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock..”

This is a beautiful song, by Michael W. Smith, called, “Draw me close to You” … Enjoy and let God fill your heart with His amazing beauty and grace…
