Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seemed to go right? And you felt all alone? And like everyone was against you?
Recently, I had that kind of day. I was working myself into quite the pity party about it, too. You know how it is: feeling sorry for yourself, because NO ONE CARES, right? During this particular party, I was driving along a wooded, private road, with hot tears overflowing.
“Nobody understands, nobody cares! I’m all by myself!” I cried as the car rolled along.
And then I saw it, right in front of me:
A leaf suspended in mid-air by a cobweb.
He always is with me, in good times and in bad. Even (and especially) when I can’t see Him. Even when I don’t know He’s there.
These scriptures flooded over me:
Never will I leave you…Hebrews 13:5b
I will not leave you as orphans…John 14:18
I am crucified with Christ…Christ lives in me…Galatians 2:20
Don’t be afraid, because I’m with you; don’t be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I’m truly helping you. I’m surely upholding you with my victorious right hand…Isaiah 41:10
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age…Matthew 28:20
Take a moment now to hide these beautiful truths in your heart. When you are feeling lost and alone, like no one is for you, bring these words to mind and praise God the He cares for you.
Father thank You, for being a caring and personal God. Thank You for holding us in the palm of Your hand, even when we can’t feel you, even when we can’t see You. You are with us. Because these promises of Yours, we know that You will never leave us or forsake us. Thank you! In the sweet and precious name of Jesus, Amen.
Grace be with you,
