(Baruch 4)

“Fear not, my children: call out to God. As your heart strayed from God, seek him who will save you and bring you back to enduring joy.”

The words, fear not and do not be afraid are so plentiful in scripture. Ours is a forgiving God. Tender merciful love has no boundaries or limits.

Lord God, you know what it is like to belong to humankind. You were one of us for many years. There is nothing about us that you do not understand. We trust you implicitly.
