So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
I was surprised that I have stared at the blinking cursor for a couple minutes trying to sort out my thoughts as I write this post. I am so thankful for God’s promise that He will never abandon me. This is a promise I need to remind myself daily, and on some days even hourly. I feel overwhelmed by the hurt and brokenness in this fallen world. I need to fix my eyes on Him, and stop focusing so much on my circumstances. I need to remember that that even when circumstances feel out of control, that God is still very much in control. I can trust that God is good all the time. His love endures forever. God’s grace is enough for me. Nothing is impossible with God. I need to cling to these truths on the hard days.
