my dear bride.

my dear bride,

I am holding your hand so don't be afraid, I am here to help you, don't worry (isaiah 41:13)

I am here at your side (isaiah 42:6cev)

I have rescued you,I have called you by name and now you belong to me. When you cross deep rivers, I will be with you and you won't drown. To me, you are very dear and I love you. Don't be afraid for I am with you. I want you to know me, to trust and understand. I can rescue you, I promise to save you, no one can snatch you from me (isaiah 43:2, 4, 5, 10, 12,13)

You are in my care, don't be terrified....you are my chosen, my very favorite (isaiah 44:1-2)

I have called you by name and highly honored you. I will keep you safe and free from shame (isaiah 45:4,17)

I have carried you along, i will still be the same, when you are old and gray, and I will take care of you. I will carry you and always keep you safe. (isaiah 46:3-4)

I will never forget you, you are always in my thought, you are continually before me, you are as lovely as a bride, wearing her jewelry (isaiah 49:15,16,18)

I, even I, am He who comforts you, who are you that you should be afraid? (isaiah 50:12)

Don't be afraid—you're not going to be embarrassed. Don't hold back—you're not going to come up short. You'll forget all about the humiliations of your youth, and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory. For your Maker is your bridegroom. Your Redeemer is the God of the whole earth. You were like an abandoned wife, devastated with grief, and God welcomed you back, Like a woman married young and then left," says your God. Your Redeemer God says: "I left you, but only for a moment. Now, with enormous compassion, I'm bringing you back. It's with lasting love that I'm tenderly caring for you. (isaiah 54:4-8)

I will guide you continually...and satisfy your soul...and strengthen your bones. You shall be like a watered garden...and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. You shall raise up the foundations of many generations. (isaiah 58:11-12)

When you see this your faces will glow; your hearts will pound and swell with pride. Treasures from across the see and the wealth of nations will be brought to you.(isaiah 60:5)

Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (isaiah 61:7)

The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride. Your children will commit themselves to you, O Jerusalem, just as a young man commits himself to his bride. Then God will rejoice over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride. (isaiah 62:3-5)

Your Bridegroom
