Isaiah 54:10

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord who has compassion on you.”

Isaiah 54:10

God has used this verse in a mighty way in my life. Especially today. 3 years ago at this time I was in a hospital room trying to process the fact that the much loved child inside of me had died. My husband was such a strong comforter during the most traumatic day of our life. I went home that evening feeling a little lost. My world had tipped over and I knew that I would never be the same. Life would never be the same. I lost a lot of my innocence and naivity that day. I got in bed and cried out to God. I was holding my unopened Bible against my chest just trying to make it to my next breath. I silently begged God to give me something, anything to help me make it. I opened my Bible and immediately read the words above. I knew they were a gift from God. That verse was written on my heart that night. It is a promise God has made me – His love and peace will never be taken from me … no matter what else is. I wish I could adequately describe how much these words mean to me – but I can’t. I am so thankful that God is ever faithful to show us compassion and comfort in our times of greatest need. Just like the song says … He is” my strong tower… shelter over me… beautiful and mighty… everlasting King…”

** I just want to add this image… my sweet friend Franchesca made this for me. Our son’s name was Asher …

Thank you Franchesa — it blessed my heart to find this in my inbox this morning!
