What do you do when it seems the weight of the worst in on your shoulders? How do you handle the struggles of this life speeding straight at you? Who are you leaning on when it feels like it’s just too much to bear?
We’ve all had these times in our lives. The heaviness of a death, an illness, or an addiction has probably touched someone who’s reading this in such a difficult way. And to the person in the thick of it, the man or woman dealing with it, it feels like it will never end.
I know that you may not think that God is really listening. You feel alone and unheard. And you don’t understand why this torture is happening to you. Why can’t God just fix it? Why can’t He turn back time and make it ok again? It doesn’t seem fair that you must suffer when everyone else around you seems to go on with life. When you’re left feeling like you’re picking up pieces all around you by yourself, it hurts the most.
I know you might not want to hear it, but I know you need to hear it. You need to know that there is One who hears you and sees you. He feels your pain. He weeps when you weep. And when it feels like there is nothing left to hold onto, you can hold on to Him.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very ready help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth shake and the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its water roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.” –Psalm 46:1-3
To the person who struggling with exactly this in this moment, I’m praying for you. I’m fervently asking that God make His presence known to you. You are not alone, and God will see you through. I promise. And He will see you through to the other side.
