Be Not Afraid

My sister Casy sent Spencer this picture by Greg Olsen title "Be Not Afraid". Her purpose in giving it to him was for comfort in the hospital. Today I was blogging and randomly the second verse to the hymn "How Firm a Foundation" came to my mind and I was reminded how lucky I am to have the guidance and peace of His "omnipotent hand."
Fear not, I am with thee. Oh, be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid.
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand.
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.


  1. Just of my favorite hymns. Thank you for this post - we always remember you guys in our prayers - He IS with you, loves you, hurts with you, laughs with you, and carries you through. Thank you for sharing your strength with all of us, we are all blessed to get to know you and your family.

  2. When I went through my divorce and I was in turmoil wondering how to raise 4 kids on my own this verse always popped into my head. It is so strong and reassuring. I love that song and can't really make it all the way through singing it without getting teary. He is watching out for you and your little family Holly!
