A Verse For The Day

I just thought maybe someone needed these today.
------------
Jer 29:11-13 "For I know the plans I am planning for you, declares Yahweh, plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and an expectancy. Then you shall call on Me, and shall come and pray to Me, and I shall listen to you. And you shall seek Me, and shall find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart." *

* Taken from The Scriptures (ISR) 1998 version.
------------

Let me carry the world on my shoulders. I daresay, mine are much bigger than yours.
---------------

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with Yahweh. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the the Father,
“You promised me YHWH, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Father replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.” *

Psa 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." *

Heb 13:5 "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." *

* Taken from KJV.
