It has been a while since I have shared any of my Names/Descriptions of God with you.

I am working through the book of Isaiah right now which is packed with names of God the Father as well as God the Son (look at Isaiah 53, for instance).

Here is a verse for you today:

The Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares, 'I will gather yet others to Him besides those already gathered'"  Isaiah 56:8

He is the Lord God.
He is the gatherer of outcasts.
And we are told two more times, He is the gatherer.

God seeks the outcasts and those considered unacceptable ~ He particularly mentions the foreigners earlier in the chapter ~ and He gathers them into His arms and into His family.

Be comforted by that Truth today!

Beautiful verse! Thinking about the attributes of God is such a comfort when you are going through a hard time. YOur brother Robert is an angel and was such a comfort on his visit to see Danny and Jody. We serve an awesome God! Janet

Another one that comforts me in hard times is from Psalm 125:2 where we are told that He is the One Who "surrounds His people". His arms are all around you during this time!
