    I’ll meet you there

    “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” – Isaiah 43:2 Recently there was a boating accident on the St. Lawrence River here in Ontario.  Three men were fishing on a boat; two lives were saved, one was taken. I can only imagine what it would feel like, to feel so helpless and out of control in such a situation.  The world can take so much from us at a moments notice, yet still, I know…
