Listen to Me.

I have cared for you since you were born.
Yes, I carried you before you were born.

I will be your God throughout your lifetime - until your hair is white with age.

I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you.

To whom will you compare Me?
Who is My equal?

Do not forget this!
Keep it in mind!
Remember this...

Remember the things I have done in the past.
For I alone am God!

I am God, and there is none like Me.

Only I can tell you the future before it even happens.
Everything I plan will come to pass.
I have said what I would do, and I will do it.

I am ready to save and show My glory!

Long ago I told you what was going to happen.
All my predictions will come true.

I have refined you in the furnace of suffering.
But, I will rescue you for My sake - yes, for My own sake!
I will not let My reputation be tarnished.

I alone am God - the First and the Last.

I will teach you what is good for you.
I will lead you along the paths you should follow.
I will give you peace flowing like a gentle river.


I alone am God!

I am God, and there is none like Me.

P.S. And I love you so very much!

(Selected from Isaiah 46 - 48, New Living Translation)

  1. This is a beautiful passage. In times like these, when I feel the world is completely upside down, I need to be reminded that God alone is God.

  2. Thanks, Sharon. As a dramatist, I will often put Scripture into conversational terms as though it were lines in a play. Your Words today greet me in the morning when I have a writing deadline upon me within hours. He will care for me - and my deadline - turning it to His Lifeline where I will - inspired by Him - surf beyond the rocky writer's block onto the shoreline of my 300 words worthy of print.

    Thanks for the good Word!
    Joy to you!

  3. Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for sharing this, they are verses and promises, we must never forget.

  4. Very comforting as I go through the aging
    process. The Lord will not forget us when
    our hair is gray. He has always carried
    us. I have read this several times today
    on blogs. The Spirit is speaking.

  5. I read this post earlier this morning and just whispered "amen" through my I just had to come back by and say "thank you"...

  6. I am God and there is no one like me; Amen that there isn't anyone like him!! He truly is an amazing God and I am so glad he loves me!!!


  7. Another perfect post to end my day with...and I feel so very loved. Thank you,

  8. Debbie - I can think of nothing else to lean on in an upside down world than the Rock. May He keep us all steady and grounded.

    Kathy - Don't the words just come alive when we *dramatize* them? Hope your deadline was met - knowing you, you came through with flying colors!! Would love to know what you were writing about.

    Nita - You'll just never know how much I need to hear and BELIEVE these words right now. Glad you enjoyed them, too.

    Sandy - Yes, it is a comfort to know that God is with us as we age. He knows our every step - before we were born He planned them. I have to rely on that in my "gray (but dyed!) hair" years.

    Karen - Oh, you're so welcome. I've had to come back and read them myself. I am being tested, and these promises are the life preserver I'm hanging on to.

    Sandie - He loves YOU big-time!!!

    Betty - I have this vision of God saying that - and it just booms through the skies like thunder. Isn't it amazing that He also chooses to speak in a still, small voice?

    Anita - You're welcome, friend. It's a good thing to end our days with the Word of God - comforting and encouraging us. Helping us to sleep in peace.


  9. Blessings Sharon, I thought with your time off that I'd finally catch up with the posts that I missed to comment on. However, I did not miss reading them...just trying to figure out which ones I missed.

    I'm so glad that you wrote this and that many were blessed by these words. I'm especially touched by what Karen wrote... because she had a fall this past weekend, broke her arm and hurt her knee and she has surgery this Fri.

    I'm so thankful that God wrote us to let us know
    this:"I will be your God throughout your lifetime - until your hair is white with age."

    Blessed by how you use this writing gift to allow Isaiah to speak to us today through a keyboard and God's love! Encouragement is two way and building your faith too... well, you give me inspiration and I thought of your PRE comment words and your recent messages as I wrote in my Secret Garden! Noticing the void without you but praying that God is filling your time with your husband with many blessings and much love. I thank God for you both and that you may be enjoying a wonderful anniversary!

    May your troubles be few and far in between and
    love and encouragement abound in leaps of a FROG!

    Peace and JOY,

  10. Peggy - Thanks for this lovely comment. I find it so very comforting that the same God who knew me before I was born, is still with me now, and will be with me until I join Him in eternity. Such a blessed promise. I didn't know any of that information about Karen - I will certainly keep her in prayers.



"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)

Thanks for your comments - it is such a joy to be sharing my journey with friends like YOU!
