Years ago, I had a friend who was completely overwhelmed with her life. She was at the altar at church crying her eyes out. I slipped out of my seat and went to her side. As I put my arm around her, I couldn’t think of anything to say except, “Let’s go back to what we know.” We talked about the basics of the Christian life and what God has promised to us – things like the fact that He loves us and won’t turn His back on us even when the whole world might.
Do you have those promises memorized so that when you’re overwhelmed you too can comfort yourself with God’s word? John 10 talks about Jesus as the Good Shepherd, and Jesus Himself assures us that no one, yes, no one, can take us away from Him. If you’re world is crumbling, go to the Rock . He’ll never let you down. While others may come and go in your life, He won’t~He can’t. He’s there to stay! Let Him carry you through the rough times! Gwen~
