When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.

This last passage is one that I relied heavily on during the early years of my marriage. We had friends with serious needs and we ourselves struggled with wanting a child in the worst way.

This passage got me through all of that and continues to sustain me.
