Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; Psalm 23:4
Sometimes, we feel like God is with us when everything is going well. After all, God is blessing us when life is good. We have so much to thank God for then. At times when all seems lost, how do we feel then? Do we still think that God is with us? Or do we feel abandoned, that God doesn't care about us anymore? God is always with us. We have nothing to fear. Everything will work out for our eternal good, even if it doesn't seem that way at the moment. I'm reminded of that famous "Footprints" poem, where the man asked Jesus why there was only one set of footprints in the hardest times of his life. Jesus responded that "it was then that I carried you." Is Jesus carrying you today? Trust in Him.
