The Name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to Him and are safe. Proverbs 18:10 (NLT)

Wherever you are at today, my friend, consider this -- "Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame" (Psalm 34:5). No matter what is in the past, it is the Lord Jesus who takes away your shame. No more "shame on you!" Jesus Christ loves you and says "SHAME OFF YOU!" He has made you clean and radiant because you are covered in His righteousness. Our hope IS in the true Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who promises in Jeremiah 29:11 that He knows the plans He has for you, plans to give you hope and a future. It is He who empowers you to keep on, persevering!
