I Am With You

by Lisa St. Ledger March 24
When life seems to be a bit bumpy, I think of a line from one of my favorite songs, “even though I love this crazy life, sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride.”
Life can be really hard sometimes. I struggle with the stresses of traumatic life events, everyday life problems, injustices and the unforgiving nature of today’s society. I pray for peace/love and answers for the hardships in life and sometimes I feel like I am alone or that God does not hear me.
While my prayer may not be answered today, I can still see God’s hand in the day-to-day life with the presence of a good friend, the beauty of the sunrise, the kindness of a stranger, or the adoration of the family pet. All of these things bring joy to my heart, reminding me that even in my difficult times He is with me and is showing himself through these beauties of life.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
Isn’t it wonderful to know that even when you feel disheartened, God is there to strengthen and lift you up? Look for him in all aspects of your life and you will find His presence, even in the smallest of ways.
