It was fun to be at the beach a few weeks ago and see my son Matthew play in the surf and navigate the crashing waves. He knew the waves were more than he could handle, but as long as his dad was with him, he was not afraid. These verses from Isaiah 43 came to mind.“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you.”
The Lord be with you,
