“Hold fast to the hope you have in me. When doubts creep into your mind or trouble knocks at your door, stand firm and be strong for you are not alone. You have the abiding, constant companionship of my Spirit within you. I will equip you to deal with whatever comes your way.
Storms will come and go, but nothing will ever overtake you as you go through them with me. I am your source of strength, the anchor of your hope, and your faithful deliverer. You may trust me to protect you. Find comfort in my love and walk confidently in the truth of my word.
My love encompasses the entirety of your life. It is the only love you will ever experience that is perfect and inescapable. When your eyes are focused on me, you can navigate anything because I am at the helm. Hold fast to the hope you’ve been called to.”
