Isaiah 41:10 - In His Hands.

Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV) Fear not, for I am with you; Be not 
dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, 
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. 


The Helper of Israel: Isaiah 41:1-29.
Fear Not, For I Am with You: Isaiah 41:1-20.


  As I hung up the phone, fear crept over me like a dark cloud. 
The doctors at UCLA had finally called with a date for my daughter's 
open-heart surgery. At five, Ashley had already survived two operations. I 
wasn't sure either of us was ready for another one. 
  The next morning, as I entered my classroom full of fourth 
graders, I noticed a card on my desk from one of my room mothers. In bold 
letters on the front I read Isaiah 41:10. The words spoke comfort to my 
soul. On the way home I turned on the radio just in time to hear the 
speaker quoting Isaiah 41:10. There it was again. 
  That night I called home, three thousand miles away, and 
poured out my doubt and fear to my stepmom. 
  "Honey, I want to read you what the pastor shared last 
Sunday," she offered in her soft southern drawl. As she read the words 
from Isaiah 41:10, I wept, knowing that God had gone to a great deal 
of trouble to let me know he was there for my daughter and me--now 
and forever.
