I am Not Your Friend. I am your parent. My mom was saying this to me long before it became popular. I was so envious of my friends' parents even though even back then I thought they were a little slow. Sixty years later I'm glad my mom was ON IT !
When I call you to go through the deep waters I will be with you! I will not let you sink nor let the waves overcome you! When you walk through the fire you will not get burned! I am the Lord thy God [paraphrase]
