I´m yours

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.

Psalm 16

Anchor for my soul

JesusmyonlyhopeThis certain hope of being saved is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls, connecting us with God himself behind the sacred curtains of heaven,
//Hebrew 6:19

Och det hoppet sviker oss inte, för Guds kärlek är utgjuten i våra hjärtan genom den helige Ande, som han har gett oss.” Rom. 5:5

You are faithful

”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer.  29:11

Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Psalm 23 :4-6

Your thoughts are higher

”When I consider your heavens,

the work of your fingers,

the moon and the stars, wich you have ordained,

what is man, that you think of him?

What is the son of man, that you care for him?”

Psalms 8:3-4

Dina tankar för mig, och din kärlek till mig, de går helt utöver mitt förstånd!

Vem är jag, att du ser mig, hör mig, bryr dig om mig, som om jag vore din egen!

När jag har dig, vad behöver jag någonsin vara rädd för?

Vad som än händer, vet jag att du bär mig, håller mig, och går vid min sida- i genom allt.

”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, says Yahweh.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9

Forever yours

”Therefore, I will now persuade her,
and bring her into the wilderness,
and speak tenderly to her.

From there I will give her her vineyards,
and make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.

There she shall respond as in the days of her youth,
as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.

And I will take you for my wife for ever; I will take you for my wife

in righteousness and in justice,

in steadfast love, and in mercy.

I will take you for my wife in faithfulness; and you shall know the Lord.”

Hosea 2: 14-15, 19-20

”Thank you for finding me when you did.

You changed my life. Now I believe that love is all

that I ever need.

I promise my heart and all that I am, that I am yours forever,

my love”
