God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble—more than enough and always available whenever I need you. So we will never fear even if every structure of support were to crumble away.
We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes, moving mountains and casting them into the sea. For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves cannot erode our faith in you. Pause in his presence…
Psalms 46:1-3 The Passion Translation
Life can be challenging! I don’t think there is anyone that would disagree with that statement. Life is not promised to be free from trouble; however, life can be better lived with a Helper from on high.
God can help you pick up the pieces when you feel shattered and broken beyond repair. In my experience, God has brought joy in the midst of sorrow, and hope when it looks like there is none.
God can be that still small voice that speaks a solution to your problem when everyone else is at a loss for words. God is present to help as a ‘Shepherd’ that takes care of His ‘sheep’, and nothing is hidden from Him.
In closing, take rest in knowing that you are never alone, and put your hope in God. You may not always get what you want, but God will always give you what you need. His love for you extends beyond the stars…
