Ann VosKamp’s wonderful post titled “Three Things to Hold On To When Life Hurts” expresses better than I ever could some of my thoughts as I think of the people of Joplin and elsewhere that are suffering.
I pray that her post encourages you! May you know that you are not alone when you suffer. God weeps with you.
The darkness of night though long will not last forever – it only seems that way. Morning will come.
Here is a verse that has comforted me many times:
- “…being content with what you have, for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU.” – part of Hebrews 13:5 NASB
- “Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” – part of Heb. 13:5, THE MESSAGE
May you be encouraged knowing that God is WITH you.
