My favorite bible verse comes from the book of Isaiah and it reads, ‘Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand’. It is my reminder that God is always with me and protects me and will never abandon me as long as I have faith in his word”
