A Promise from Isaiah 43

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:
all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!
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.
“So don’t be afraid:
I’m with you.
I’ll round up all your scattered children,
pull them in from east and west.
 I’ll send orders north and south:
‘Send them back.
Return my sons from distant lands,
my daughters from faraway places.
I want them back, 
every last one who bears my name,
every man, woman, and child
Whom I created for my glory,
yes, personally formed and made each one.'”
