Some days are really hard. We wonder why we are here, what God expects of us, and who can help us endure the heartaches we face.
There is One who can help us. He says that he will feed his flock like a shepherd, that he will gather us, his lambs, with his arms and carry us in his bosom. He promises that when we trust in Him and focus our thoughts on Him, He will keep us in perfect peace. So how do we do that?
We can trust that He keeps His promises. We can picture Him carrying us in his arms and holding us during our times of sorrow. We can believe that He hears our prayers and then accept His will in our lives. We can trust that as light follows darkness, peace follows pain.
It took a lot of trust for Rahab, a harlot, to allow Joshua to stay in her home. Because of her faith, the Lord saved her and her entire household. It takes a lot of courage to trust in a Higher Power when health, financial, or relationship issues have brought us to our knees. When we place our trust in God, He will save us. Our beautiful Lord will give us peace amid sorrow.
