God tells us in his word that we will go through times that are dark and lonely, times when we can’t see our way through, but if we keep walking, we will come out into the light.

Psalm 66:12 says; we went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.

Isaiah 43:2-5 says; when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place. Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you; Therefore I will give men for you, And people for your life. Fear not, for I am with you;

We need to remind ourselves, as we are walking down those dark and lonely hallways of life that God said ‘fear NOT, I am with you.’  I am so thankful that he never leaves us nor forsakes us through those times.  It may feel like he has left, but we have his promise.  Even when our hearts are broken, God says ‘I am near to the broken hearted and I bind up their wounds.’ God is so faithful to us, especially in the times we may feel he is far away.  He is right there…… as near as your next breath!
