I John 5:4
What we can find while searching through the scriptures are the many things God tell us about our suffering and hard times. We all face hard times at one point or another in life, and many of us may even find ourselves there right now. In the midst of fear and panic, over the current pandemic that is at our very doorstep’s, things are changing daily. Store shelves are empty of even the most basic things. Schools are closed. Restaurants are going out of business. People are being laid off and even places of worship are closed.
The great news is this:
God never leaves us to fend for ourselves in difficult times. He promises to be with us in all that we face, and his whole heart encompasses our pain and surrounds us in peace. He gives us incredible hope and grace to keep pressing through. Knowing that this too shall pass is one way we can live keeping our earthly life in perspective.
