The hard days

My eyes fail from weeping,
   I am in torment within;
my heart is poured out on the ground...
Where would I be without the promises of God?
I can not imagine if I had to face these storms without him. The enemy comes in seeking to destroy us. And sometimes it seems like he may do just that. If we had to rely on our strength only to defeat him, we would no doubt fail. But we don't. We have a God. A God that even when we are at our weakest point, even when we have given up, holds onto us with all his might and fights on our behalf for us. Just like we would do for any of our children. The second we give our lives to Him, we are adopted as his children. And He will never put us down. He will never leave us to be defeated by the enemy.

Lamentations 3:22-23 says..It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion's fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Maybe you are going through a hard time right now. I am there too. And it seems like maybe this is it. Maybe the enemy will win. Maybe it's time to give up. Don't. It is when we are at our weakest that God is strongest. There's this old song my mom used to sing, I can't remember who it's by, but it says "so there will be no mistaking when he blesses and heals, friend, God likes to work when nothing else will".
Keep praying, keep believing, and holding on to the promises of God. Our help is on the way!
