Walkimg on promises # 10

Isaiah 43:2 "Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art Mine. 2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."

Felisol, there is nothing I like better than walking beside the ocean. The smell of the salt air and the feeling of the sand between my toes ...a beautiful photo.

The Isaiah Scripture is exactly what I needed to read. He is with me even when I pass though the water and the fires. What a comfort to remember this.

I am studying Isaiah in Bible Study Fellowship this year but we are only on chapter one. See, the Lord has such perfect timing.

I also wanted to thank you for suggesting I follow Lidj's blog Crown of Beauty. She's been such a blessing as you've also been to me.

Love and blessings,

Dear Debbie,
The sea is definitely my element too.

Studying Isaiah you've got lots of blessings coming. He is my favorite prophet. So many words of comfort and such strong promises.
Reading the scripture makes me renewed. I always find nuances and new sentences, I never observed before.

I am happy that you and Lidj are getting on so well.
She has been through lots of trials and come strong out. I find she shares of a clean and brave heart.
You are both friends well worth taking care of.
I'm happy every time you visits.

Nest time I'm tempted to surf the internet for a photo of a lady in a skimpy swimsuit, I'll remember this photo.

Commenting on James Joyce is beyond me, so you don't hear from me as often as before.

The scriptures are illustrated very fittingly Felisol. No matter ho w strong the waves are an d the ground seems to be slipping from beneath our feet the Promises Of God are our firm foundation.

Pray all of you are keeping well.

Dear John C,
This lady wore two woolen jumpers,a parkas and a mackintosh with a fur lining. Suitable for a three hours beach stroll.
You dream maidens wouldn't last for ten minutes here north.

Then again, you don't surf for Norway, I guess, but for Florida with where the sun always shine.

Just one last chapter of Ulysses and I have finished my summer project.
Just to prove to myself I had the stamina.

this has always been a favourite verse of mine ... i say amen to it! and may God bless your week, dear felisol, with His own sweet Presence!

Terry said...

dear felisol..this IS a lovely verse to be thinking about while walking by the waters...maybe if i ever come to see you and your sea, i will keep this verse in mind..
and why shouldn't we come and see you? after all my little sister gracie went to japan for a couple of weeks to see her son who lives there now...and all by herself!
it would be a dream come true to me felisol if i would ever meet you and your dear family this side of heaven...i am really thinking of this! i really am! terry

Dear Terry,
my bestest blog friend, I'm glad you are a woman of action.
You and Bernie shall be so welcome, anytime.
May and August are the best months to see Norway. June and July usually are too wet.
Well, we'll leave that to the Lord, He supply us with good and useful weather, as we pray in the weekly Sunday Church prayer.
You will find things different, but not bad.
I guess you are open to that, my sister.

Beautifully illustrated with your photographs, Felisol. You obviously put a lot of work and love into these posts.
