Maybe right now you're in the midst of a long, hard time in your life.
Maybe you've reached the end of your endurance. Sometimes you wonder whether God has turned his back on you. Otherwise, how could you pray and pray, yet nothing changes?
Been there, thought that, sometimes.
That's when we try to make sense of it on our own. Every one of us can think of times when we "knew" how "A" would lead to "B," then inevitably to "C."
Except it didn't.
Then it's time to remind myself what I know. I see only today. God sees yesterday, today and tomorrow. He loves us and promises to be our strength all through life, in good times and in the worst of times.
That does not guarantee our life will smooth out and be pain-free. All we can do is keep on trusting and keep on walking.
Someone sent me this YouTube. The song was new to me and so was the singer Laura Story. Her song touched my heart. She says what we all need to remember when we're slogging through one of those misery times.
I hope these lyrics speak to you as they do to me.
