I came across this note from Feb 24 2015. I hope it will encourage you!

“BE CALM- “Because God will not under any circumstance leave you.”-

I had written this in my Bible at some earlier date regarding Hebrews 13:5. It caught my attention today and made me think, in the midst of so many tests, stress, chronic illness, trials, I needed to “preach to my self-”

BE CALM- Because God will not under any circumstance leave you!…

it was the jolt I needed to my own frayed nerves. IT BROKE IN ON ALL THE DISTRACTING EXHAUSTION OF WEAKNESS, PAIN AND Just brought a moment for a longed-for breather! Everything stopped – all the spinning relentless thoughts, of beat down, worn down, close to tears, wanting to say “enough I can’t do this anymore…” and then two words, “BE CALM” – ‘arrested my thoughts and began to TURN MY ATTENTION back to the reality – The LORD is with me!

I began to think of the old hymn, the second stanza over my years has been a healing, soothing balm in many a tough, perplexing place

“Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.

Leave to thy God to order and provide;

In every change, He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend

Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake

To guide the future, as He has the past.

Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;

All now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know

His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.” – (Ka­tha­ri­na A. von Schle­gel,)

UPDATE; FAST FORWARD To Today which  is Feb 25 2023… another bad day with a new incurable illness on the 23th I was told,  and a night or so later -for a moment the news was scary, as I contemplated it, and then… I found this note…HOW KIND OF THE LORD… PREVIOUS LORD,… HE GOES BEFORE HIS SHEEP and had this note come up on my “Facebook memories” just as I was receiving “bad ” news…” BUT GOD!” how kind a Shepherd

Be encouraged, and remember… preach to yourself…to…

“BE CALM- “Because God will not under any circumstance leave you.”

“…being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever abandon you,”-{Hebrews 13:5}

“”being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”-{Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Bible.}

God bless.
