We often feel alone when hit by disaster; a lie speaks saying that God has abandoned us. When difficult times surface, we may think that we are being punished for something we did, but this is not always the case, it is simply the unpredictable pattern of life that we have no control over. No matter what is going on in our lives, no matter how we feel, God loves us.
He is with us through the waters so we do not drown, and through the flames so we do not burn. He mends broken hearts, He gives rest to the weary, He strengthens the weak, and He is water to thirsty souls. He can use our pain and cause something beautiful to spring out of it. In time, God restores.
