Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
”They shall neither hunger nor thirst,
Neither heat nor sun shall strike them;
For He who has mercy on them will lead them,
Even by the springs of water He will guide them.”
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
”Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.”
Bold, courageous, fearless and beautiful

”You surround me with your song
You sing over me
Songs of joy
rooting in my heart
Makes my heart bubbeling
Wow, that I am loved by you!
And to know that you love me,
This, i can’t contain-
I just have to bring it all back to you!”

Your grace speaks louder than my shame,
my mistakes, all my failures.
Your blood covers all my transgressions,
through your sacrifice at the cross
Just because of what you did,
not because of what i can do.
Your arms are open wide.
Your love will never fail me.
All I can do is just to receive your grace
and your grace is enough for me.
Through your eyes, i am beautiful.
You won´t hold my sin against me,
there´s no condemnation for those who believe in you.
Thank you Jesus- your love is greater than i can comprehend!
”Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.”
”I said, “I will confess
my transgressions to the Lord.”
And you forgave
the guilt of my sin.”
”…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning…”

Good News of Deliverance
This is what Jesus promises you!
I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
My body rests in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.
