Persevere, do not give up. You are on the pathway
I have for you. Learn to enjoy where you are,
Knowing I am ever with you. I am your protector.
Listen. Become more aware of the voices about you.
Do not be lulled to speak judgement.
On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, Zion;
do not let your hands hang limp. The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:16-17 (NIV)
