““So don’t be afraid: I’m with you. I’ll round up all your scattered children, pull them in from east and west. I’ll send orders north and south: ‘Send them back. Return my sons from distant lands, my daughters from faraway places. I want them back, every last one who bears my name, every man, woman, and child Whom I created for my glory, yes, personally formed and made each one.’””
Isaiah 43:5-7 MSG
For years now I have gathered verses about my kids. Anything encouraging and peace-bringing to my anxious mind. I want to know -God loves them, -watches over them and -holds them close. I want assurance of His glory working through their lives!
Maybe at times I stretch too far, believe too much (on their behalf) or take promises that aren’t mine to apply – but God knows my fierce mother’s heart and hopefully gives me some slack…. ok, a lot of slack.
Some 2188 times the phrase “your faith” is used in the New Testament! If I err, it will be on the side of having BIG faith in a BIG God, Who I believe with all my heart- can do far more than I ask or even imagine.
So I will continue to have faith for their salvation and maturity in Christ – not from what I see and hear, but from what Almighty God is capable of through His resurrected Son 🙌🏽
These souls that I helped produce were dedicated to Him and have daily been laid before Him.
They are His in Jesus’ name!
