my memory verse for this week...

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
( Isaiah 41:10)

I can't help but be encouraged by this...for truly when does a day go by that we don't Fear something? There is always something that makes me "anxiously look about" ( which is the New American Standard Version's way of saying "dismayed") ....and it is ALWAYS necessary for me to get a reminder that Jesus is upholding me with his very hands, for I am His little girl.
There is no place I'd rather be.

P.S. Next week's verse is the easiest one yet! But, it's also jam packed full of goodness:

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me ( Philippines 4:13)

Mmmmm, i love Navigators.
And you didn't *know* about the "songs of ascent" blog because i only just finished "perfecting" the layout yesterday! And you didn't know about the bible study because you do not have nearly enough communication with your fabulous aunt (but it's really her fault for having malfunctioning internet). Anyway, this is Sydney, aka Friday. Thanks for commenting!

You raise an interesting point about the daily prescence of fear.

Thanks for this.

Food for thought is surely the most nutricious meal.

Cheers.
