Right after I graduated high school, I dated a man who's parents told their children when they had to move out. They did so by turning your dinner plate upside down. That meant you could have dinner that night, but from then on you had to be an invited guest to have a place set. His plate was turned over before he graduated high school.
Have you ever been thrown into a situation you were not prepared for? Something that was frustrating, or even frightening? When have you had to step up and do something you weren't ready for?
Death of a spouse or a child?
Afraid to be alone?
Perhaps you are facing your own mortality.
The fact is, this happens all the time in life. People and circumstances are often thrown at us with little or no notice of what will come next. This can be a trying time for many. But God said, "I will never leave you. I sill never forsake you." No matter what happens in this life, we can count on the promises of God. This is undeniable, and unmovable.
God said it. I believe it. That settles it.
This phrase was very popular a few years ago. While it may have rubbed some people the wrong way, it is a solid truth. He has promised to be there and to take care of His people. Sometimes we have to open our hearts and minds to see it, but it is always there.
So the next time you find yourself in some trying circumstances, just remember, God will never hand you a $20 bill and a new pair of shoes, and send you out into the world all by yourself. He is walking with you all the way. We are not alone.
Until next time:
Peace to you and yours,
