  1. I’ve never thought of God’s “righteous right hand” in such a concrete way before, Krista, but your experience has put flesh and bones into that verse for me, and I’m grateful.
    Thanks for all you do.

    • Hi, Michele. Thank you for your kind words. All praise to God for His mighty protection.

  2. Krista,

    What a powerful testimony to God’s protective hands. Impending trials make us doubt & despair. We should turn right to God for He is there waiting to hold our hands & guide us out of the situation. We should always trust in the Lord. Several times in the Bible it says “do not fear; do not be afraid.” Why? For the Lord your God is with you always. Just reach up & take His righteous right hand, hold on tight. He will be your deliverer. I remember one time driving home from college with dad. My car started making noises & acting up. We stopped in a small town in the middle of nowhere. Spent the night got up on Saturday & found a car dealership of varying models. We drove to service side & asked them to look at it. Fortunately it was just a wire not connected. They didn’t charge us anything. I know God had his hand in that.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Krista, needed to hear this today.. I feel like this grief never cease and every time I think I am truly getting better, some little memories hit me and I am left with tears flowing as if I was taken back in time. I try my best to have a positive viewpoint and I know in my heart that she, my bestie would not want me to feel so sad with grief but goodness it is hard some days. So yes today Lord, I Need Your Hand to pull me out of this grief. Thank you for this reminder Krista.. Greatly needed.

    • Dear Maylee, I am sorry for your grief and I will remember you in my prayers today. May you feel God’s arms holding you as you walk through the valley together.
