All around us are people struggling.

We hear their hearts breaking, see their lives being torn apart, feel the depth of their sorrow.

Friends. Family. Loved ones. Desperately trying to hang on to the conviction that there is power in trusting in a faithful God.

Praising. Reaching. Crying. Kneeling before the throne of God.

Psalm 56:1

You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?


Asking the difficult questions. Asking the whys. Job did it. He struggled with God for a long time. He begged God for blessing, and refused to give up until He came through. And He did come through.

You are still trusting, holding tight to the God you know will deliver.

Psalm 100:5

For the LORD is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Beloved, know that you are His, and He is yours.

1 John 4:16

So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

1 John 4:18 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Know that He still heals and that EVERY FOE IS SUBJECT TO HIM.

Romans 8:31

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Deuteronomy 31:8

It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.

You are so precious to Him. He is merciful, gracious, true, powerful. Faithful God.

Keep following hard after Him and know that those who love you are praying for you,

even if they don’t know the words to say.

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
