God is saying to us in Isaiah 43:1-3 The Passion Translation “ Now this is what Yahweh says, Listen to the one who created you , to the one who shaped you who you are. Do not fear, for I your Kinsman-Redeemer, will rescue you. I have called you by name and you are mine. When you pass through the deep stormy sea, you can count on me to be there with you. When you pass through raging rivers, you will not drown. When you walk through persecution like firey flames, you will not be burned; the flames will not harm you. For I am your Savior, Yahweh, your mighty God, the Holy One of Israel. “ No matter what we are going through, God is near.All of my original paintings in my Gallery are available for shipping throughout the US and internationally via USPS.
