Promises, Promises

We're in Year B, Week 7 of the Christian calendar, a chapter in the Green Book called "Dangerous Journey." The suggested Scriptural readings for this week include two passages (and promises) that have been particularly encouraging to me (Aaron) during the past few years:

"But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: 'Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior...'"


"The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace."

In other words..."God is big. God is good. And God can be trusted."
