This selection reminds me that God is always there for us even when we feel that he is far away. Sometimes we all feel that we are not close to God, that he has forgotten us. It is in these times that we should look back and see all the wonderfully things that God has done for us. If we take a few minutes and talk to God and ask for his love and forgiveness, he is always ready to respond to us. When we refocus on God, we will feel the closeness we seek. God never forgets us; he is right beside us at all times.
Like my favorite poem “Footprints in the Sand”. When we are in the most troublesome times in our lives, this is when God carries us. He has not left us, but carries the load for us.
Lord, help us to put our trust in you. Grant us peace and strengthen our faith in you. Help us to allow you to be to Lord of our life.
