Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Think of how many times you have walked into a room to get something only to suddenly realize you can’t recall what it was you came in for. (Don’t laugh at us older folks — you yung’uns have had the same experience!) Someone has mentioned that even atheists believe in God because they often ask, “What am I here after?”

I once heard the story about an older gentleman who always called his wife affectionate  names like “Honey,”  “Sweetie,”  “Dearie,”  “Love.”  When a friend complimented him on the sweet names he called his wife, the old gentleman replied, “I have to, I haven’t been able to remember her name for ten years.”

Peggy Lee, a popular vocalist back in the 50’s, had a hit song titled “Is That All There Is?”  It was a depressing song to me.  It is an accurate question for many people who try to fill their lives with all of the worldly comforts only to come near the end and find that the things of this life will never satisfy.

God has given His promise to us that He is always there beside us. In the Old Testament He was the hope of all who would trust Him.  He gave His word of promise through His prophets; and those who trusted in Him looked down the ages of time, and through the eyes of faith, saw the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
