I Will Never Leave You

I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

What does one do when they feel forsaken, forgotten? Questions scream louder than the thoughts in one’s head, ricocheting off the broken pieces of the heart. Why? WHY? Where are you God?

The world cries with Newtown, Connecticut.

Where are you God?

Each child precious, each adult endearing. Gone.

Where are you God?

In the midst of the tears He whispers ‘I am here‘. His own heart breaking with ours.  “I. Will. Never. Leave. You. Nor. Forsake. You.”

Evil exists. I am with you.

Pain penetrates. I will comfort you.

Strength fades. I will carry you.

Now is the time to remind ourselves, to remind others, of God’s attributes. He is faithful, He is merciful, He is the Prince of Peace, He is the Redeemer, He is the Restorer, He is the Provider, He is the Comforter, He is Strength, He is good, He is loving. Whatever we need, He can and will supply.

One day at a time. One step at a time.
