God is always with us. He’s one faith call away.
A few days ago, I was having a really tough morning. Negative thoughts about a really tough situation replayed over and over in my mind. I felt so defeated. It felt as if the enemy was closing in on my me and my hope was slipping away. The moment the kids went to school and the house settled with quietness, I broke down. As I kneeled beside my chair because I literally felt as if I couldn’t stand, I sobbed and told God over and over that I couldn’t take it anymore. In that moment, I felt so alone. For a brief moment, as the tears poured from my eyes and my whole body shook with sobs, I desired for someone to pray with me—someone to help me.
Then I felt Jesus, with His arm across me and He prayed with me. For days, I have replayed the scene over and over in my head. Every time that I think about it, I feel so loved. God reminded me that I’m never alone. He is always right there and He understands my tears. And He must have picked up my burden when we got up because I don’t have it anymore.
What an amazing God that we serve! I am so grateful for the awe moments that He gives me in my life. The God who created this world, with all its splendor, created me, too. And He is my friend!

Psalm 18:2-3 (KJV)
2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Love and blessings,
