“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.
I paid a huge price for you.
That’s how much you mean to me!
That’s how much I love you!
I’d sell off the whole world to get you back,
trade the creation just for you.
Last night I had the most amazing opportunity— I baptized my dad.
Close your eyes. Think about where you were a year ago. Where you were six months ago. The lowest time of your life. Your wits end. When you didn’t feel like you had any more fight left in you. Now look at you. You are here. This is the moment you were waiting for, the hope. This was God’s promise. When you took on so much you couldn’t
handle it all, God came in and took on the rest. This is the future you were promised. You are walking your promise. Your promise of a purpose being revealed, past failures and heartache gone forever, a fresh start. You are new.
