Thankful for His Presence

The most comforting news Scripture has for the sufferer is that where pain, grief, and hurt are, there is God. Instead of a panacea, our Lord offers His presence. One of the greatest promises in the Bible, which speaks to all our fears, is bound up in the very name of our Lord—Immanuel: “God with us.”   – Walter C Kaiser, Jr., Grief and Pain in the Plan of God: Christian Assurance and the Message of Lamentations

I am so thankful for God’s faithful presence amidst every circumstance. Aren’t you?

    That has always been my favorite name for the Lord. I pulled my daughter’s name from it because it sounds similar. Emma. What a wonderful promise we have in that name alone! Thanks for sharing!
