Drowning In Trouble

Icicle Creek cold and frothing

Icicle Creek cold and frothing


There are times I feel overwhelmed.
Lost to anything good,
Drowning in fear.
Floundering in guilt and shame for falling so low,
I drink the cup of tears, with no end.
How will I ever live again?

But now, this is what the Lord says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;”
Isaiah 43:1-3

One thought on “Drowning In Trouble

  1. So so beautiful. Just what I needed today. It has encouraged and renewed my strength Bcs I know the water, the current, and the fire will not defeat or consume me.
