One Thousand Gifts (con't)

"...I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you"
(Isaiah 46:4).

I will carry you

Even when I am right beside my children, they still fall. They still get hurt. I do my best to comfort them and help them feel better when they get hurt. Similarily, God is always right beside us. We still fall. We still get hurt. However, God lifts us up, He carries us, He comforts us, and He tends to our wounds. What a loving, caring God we have!

Continuing to give thanks...
