God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
Does it seem like everything around you is falling apart?
Does God seem far away, even though He is right beside you all the way?
Have you recently lost a loved one?
Are you going through marital discord?
Have you recently lost a job or dealing with financial difficulty?
Know that God is with you through it all. Whatever circumstance you are going through today, please remember He is with you! God loves you.
In the last two years I have seen a sibling be delivered to the loving arms of God, my parent's marriage end in divorce, heard of several friends marriages going through trials and experienced serious trials in my own marriage. However, God has been faithful through it all, and has given me the strength to deal with my own issues, but He has also given me the tools I need to be an encouragement to others.
There have been countless moments that I have asked, "What are You trying to teach me in this situation, Lord?" He has not always answered the desires of my heart and my questions right away but I know that in His time, all will be revealed. However, wherever the journey takes me, I know He goes with me!
