He Is With You

Has it been a rough week?

Do you need some encouragement?


“The One who formed you says,

‘Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.

I have called you by name; you are Mine.

When you go through deep waters,

I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty,

you will not drown.

When you walk through the fire of oppression,

you will not be burned up;

the flames will not consume you.

For I am the Lord, your God,

the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

Do not me afraid, for I am with you’”

(Isaiah 43:1-3; 5 NLT).


My precious Dad entered heaven this week. We had his funeral
service today. He was ready for heaven! And I’m so grateful for the
wonderful spiritual heritage he left me.


I’m speaking in Salem, OR this weekend and would appreciate your prayers.

    Thank you so much for your encouragement! It means even more knowing that you shared those words of life when you’re experiencing the loss of your Dad. I’m sorry for your loss and praying you will be strengthened by Father Gods embracing love and abiding peace. I’m so glad he knew Jesus and that his legacy of knowing and trusting God continues as you share that hope to others.
    Today was my first time receiving your emails. It meant a lot as I’m going through life transitions of caring for my Mom who recently moved to a nursing facility and I have a teenage daughter. God bless you and keep in perfect peace.

    I am so sorry to hear about your dad! I know the sadness as I just lost my daddy on Jan, 3rd. We’re so blessed to know that we will be with them again in Heaven but we miss them sometimes painfully here on earth! Praying for you during your time of grief and also as you continue your ministry! I am a member of San Antonio First Church and enjoyed your services there recently! You are such a blessing!!
