Oh, Weary Soul… it’s okay already.

When you are in over your head, God’s arms come under you. 

“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…your Savior.” 
Isaiah 43:1-4 MSG
