“Jesus will still be there, His love will never change, it’s sure as a steady rain. Jesus will still be there, when no one else is true, He’ll still be lovin’ you. When it looks like you’ve lost it all and you haven’t got a prayer, Jesus will still be there.” Point of Grace
When the thick blackness of discouragement, doubt, and disappointment envelopes us, our visions become blurry, our hopes diminish, comforting words seem like phrases and kind acts seem like empty gestures.
In one way or another, we have all experienced a reality that displaces our cherished dreams and jars our precious desires and ideals.
Be reminded that for every “broken ideal” and “crushed dream”, for every person who walked away, abandoned us or “left too soon”…there is a faithful God who is in the thick of things, on the scene, in the fray…working behind the scenes to mend our hearts and draw us closer to Him.
This God who is for us doesn’t disappear when the growling of our aching souls becomes louder than the noises around us. He doesn’t disappear and pull vanishing acts when things get dicey; He doesn’t take a break from His divine nature when things look bleak. He doesn’t find His “quiet space” and demand “personal time” when we yearn for His presence.
He is always there….
…and leaving us is never an option for Him.
So “be strong and have strength of heart. Do not be afraid or shake with fear because of them. For the Lord your God is the One Who goes with you. He will be faithful to you. He will not leave you alone. (Deuteronomy 31: 6)
