Hebrews 13:5

My husband read Hebrews 13:5 to us tonight at dinner, which says: "Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have.  For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'"  He went on to share some mighty good words with us about the centrality of Jesus in our lives.  Words I needed to hear once more!

The kids and I went to stay with a friend for the first few days of this week and guess what verse my friend had plastered in her kitchen?  Hebrews 13:5 (well, the second part of it anyway!).  She had it written in an amplified version and I loved it so much I copied it down in my Bible:  "I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless, nor forsake you, nor relax my hold on you assuredly not."  This was the very message I needed to have poured over my frazzled soul, and my gracious Father hugged me with it at my friends house, and then again tonight through my sweet husband.

He will not relax His hold.  Amen!


  1. There is such peace that comes from resting in our Father's love for us. God really wants you to understand His great love for you. Many blessings, Connie!
