BETTY ROBISON — God is the one we can trust with all our thoughts and feelings. He is the one who is always there. He will never leave us. We can tell him anything and everything.

He is a safe place. He is our comforter, our shelter, our place of rest and the ultimate Giver of peace. He is unlimited in his grace and forgiveness!

He will take all our faults and all our sins and wash us white as snow.

His forgiveness is everlasting. He won’t take it back or bring it back up to condemn us. Only our enemy does that. (Romans 4:7-8 NLT)

I think on phrases from favorite hymns:

“Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe.” “I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain.”

Every second of every day, the fears, doubts and confusion brought on by the enemy  — I give to Jesus, because He paid it all.

I give all that I am to Him!

I think back on my journey thus far and know how awesome, truly awesome, my heavenly Father is in my life.

—     He is my protector

—     He is my shield

—     He is everywhere I go

—     He knows all about me
