Come Alongside



All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah!

Father of all mercy!

God of all healing counsel! 

He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, He brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 {The Message}

    1. A gentle reminder of who He is and who we're called to be in relation to others, yes?

  3. Yes, He does bring us along side of someone else who is going through hard times. And right now, as a Nation, we are shoulder-to-shoulder in this time of pain, sorrow and loss.

  7. Love this verse along with the picture, we go walking often and we go with others too so we can encourage each other along the way. That is a good thing... and very encouraging.

  8. Such a living and fresh translation - oh it is so important to have people walking beside you - I've recently experienced that ... It's really gift from God to be able to share the burden, pray and be strengthened. We walk each our own path here - in His light, following His footsteps, strenghened by our fellow sisters and brothers ... Thank you, Linda!

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
