Fear thou not;
for I am with thee:
be not dismayed;
for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I wil help thee:
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness.
I usually like to write on my Religion Blog about Scripture

I like Isaiah because many of the lyrics in Handel's Messiah are
taken from Isaiah:

the warfare is accomplished, that the iniquity is Pardoned...
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness.
Prepare ye the way of the Lord.
Isaiah 40: 4

Matthew 3: 16

And He opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they sahll be comforted.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Matthew 5: 15
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlstick;
and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and
glorify your Father which is in heaven.
I feel better now.
Any prayers would be appreciated.
