a needed reminder…

“But now listen, O Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen.
This is what the Lord says — he who made you,
who formed you in the womb, and who will help you:
Do not be afraid, O Jacob, my servant, Jeshrun, whom I have chosen.
For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit
on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.
They will spring up like grass in a meadow,
like poplar trees by flowing streams. One will say, 
‘I belong to the Lord’; another will call himself by the name of Jacob;
still another will write on his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’
and will take the name Israel. …”
Isaiah 44:1-5
Words received… unexpectedly… from a sister in Christ…
Words I needed to hear… read again… and again…
in the midst of doubt… discouragement… uncertainty…
…listen… my servant… whom I have chosen…
This is what the Lord says — he who made you…
and who will help you: Do not be afraid…
Encouraging words…
reminders that I am His…
a chosen servant…
whom He will help…
I take His Word literally… 

still another will write on his hand, ‘The Lord’s’…

A reminder of Whose I am…
I need not be afraid…
He will help me…
