1Peter 1:6-7, "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

(NIV)
1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 9-10

I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10(NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (NIV)
Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's Psalm 103:2-5 (NIV)
Your life will be brighter than the noonday.
It's darkness will be like morning and you will have confidence
because there is hope.

You Are Not Alone from Day Spring
You are not alone-
For God is with you.
You are not defenseless-
For God is your protector.
You are not inadequate-
For God is your sufficiency.
You are not useless-
For God has a purpose for your life.
You are not worthless-
For God sent His Son to die for you.
You are not without hope-
For God has a place prepared for you.
You are not unloved-
For God loves you with an everlasting love.
You are not rejected, or abandoned-
For God calls you His own.
"I will never fail you. I will never abandon you." So we can say with confidence,
"The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?"
