Last week was a tough week. Nothing in particular happened.
My children are all healthy, we don’t have money worries, our marriage is good. I have lots to be thankful for.
But it was tough.
My Mojo was gone.
My get up and go, had got up and gone…
I was paddling upstream.
On Friday, I sat down with my cuppa, my Bible and my devotional book,ONE YEAR DAILY GRIND PB (One Year Books) by Sarah Arthur and started to read.
Sarah was writing about exactly how I felt. She was going through it too. It was so reassuring to know that I’m not alone in this feeling.
The Bible verse for the day truly touched home:
“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 will not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2
It is so encouraging to know that God is with us all the time. As Christians, we are not exempt from challenges and trials. In fact the very first line confirms that-
“When you pass through the waters,”
Not if but When.
We will have trials, challenges and just general tough days. But not matter what, God promises that “I will be with you”
What an awesome promise.
