Blessed are you
as you wait on Me

walking in My

for I listen to
your every cry

and answer you

For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him. He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:18,19 NKJV

In Truth and Love

you have from Me
for you are in
the truth

walking in love
for one another
just as I
commanded you.

And now I plead with you , lady, not as though I write a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning; that we love one another. This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning you should walk in it.” 2 John 1,2,3,5,6 NKJV
