Well, I am taking a quote from the BEST book ever.... The Bible!!! I figure that if God said it, it counts as a quote, right??
Isaiah 41: 8-14 (sometimes when I am afraid, I like to take 'Jacob' or 'Isreal' and change it to my name)
"But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend, You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth and called from its remotest parts and said to you, 'You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you. Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.' Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish. You will seek those who quarrel with you, but will not find them, those who war with you will be as nothing and non-existent. For I am the Lord you God, who upholds your right hand, who says to you, 'Do not fear, I will help you.' Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you," declares the Lord, "and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel."
This is such a great reminder to me that no matter what troubles I get in, or whatever temptations, trials, or suffering I go through, He is always there! He will uphold me and keep me steady, tearing away my enemies. Isn't that such a wonderful thought?
