For Thou didst form my inward parts;
Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Thy works, and my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth.
Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Thy book they were all written,
The days that were ordained for me when as yet there was not one of them.
How precious also are Thy thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with Thee

You lack nothing that His grace can’t give you.
He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill
His special purpose for this generation.
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:8
We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you. Isaiah 43:1-2

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
to keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall

therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.” Psalm 91
