“But now, God´s message, the God who made you in the first place, Jacob, the One who got you started, Israel: `Don´t be afraid, I´ve redeemed you. I´ve called your name. You´re mine.
When you´re in over your head, I´ll be there with you. When you´re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you´re between a rock and a hard place, it won´t be a dead end – because I am God, your personal God, the Holy of Israel, your Savior.”
Isaiah 43, 1-3
For me as a Christian, life is not necessarily better than for anybody else: it is not always easy, I experience conflicts or problems, just like everyone else does. But as a Christian I am better off, because in everything Christ is with me. My basic need to be loved and accepted is met in Jesus Christ, no matter the circumstances. I am not alone – and that makes all the difference.
