With everything that is going on in the world around us, it is best that we take time to remember who our God is and that HE is in control. He is over all the small things and all the large things. He sees every need, hears every prayer, loves every person. He is a Good God and His promises will not fail. It is our duty to tell others about Him. It’s our purpose to go out and share the Gospel, even in these times where standing firm on the TRUTH may cause persecution. 

The world is hungry for the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE because what we are facing is causing so much unrest, loss, and sorrow. As humans, we can still know that even as we struggle and even as we worry, God is near to us and we have nothing to fear. He will provide. He will direct our paths. He will hold us close. He will be with us.

We have God’s promise to always hold us near Him where we can draw on His strength to make us strong.

Hope is not lost, so don’t give up. Take it one day at a time, one prayer at a time, one scripture at a time.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you today with our burdens and lay them at your feet. We lean on YOU and trust in your promise to walk with us through troubled times and to give us unexplainable peace. And, though we are surrounded on all sides by a fallen world, we are yours. Come what may, we are yours. Amen.
