Still Standing In Spite of It All

When you feel at your wits end with stress, pain and a world that seems to be falling apart…remember only the strong survive.

You may feel forsaken, overwhelmed, exhausted and afraid.

Maybe your finances, relationships, health, doubt and hard circumstances make you feel like your world has turned upside down.  Maybe you feel like there is no secure ground to stand on to support you.

For those in grief, Christ offers comfort.  For those full of heartache or physical pain, He offers hope and healing. To those who carry emotional burdens and broken dreams, Christ offers His strength.  For those who struggle, He offers rest.

After the dust clears from dreams dropped, a job shattered, falling finances or the banging sound of change, you can still find a place of inner peace.  The Lord changes not and stands ready to guide and provide for you and your family.  Seek His comfort.  Study His word.  Surrender to His way.  Keep your hope and trust in the Lord even when everything around you seems hopeless.   Believe in God’s restoration and resurrection power for your life.  You can rise again.

Even during life’s darkest hours, confidently speak these words from Romans, “nothing can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:31-39).

My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Exodus 33:14)

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Deuteronomy 33:27)

The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. (Psalm 9:9-10)

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. (Psalm 46:1-3)
