You Are Never Alone

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.  Isaiah 41:10
Have you ever felt alone in the midst of a struggle or storm? I have… many times. But if you have surrendered your life to God then I can assure you that you are not alone. There may be times when you can’t feel Him but He is there. He is fighting your battles, carrying you when you’re too weak to go on & holding you in your arms, comforting you like a good Father. 
Recently my husband and I began having some difficulties in our relationship. It seemed that no matter how hard we tried to keep peace, everything would become a quarrel. I began praying and noticing that something was different about my husband. When I brought up that I hated what was happening between us, he simply replied that he was struggling with some issues that he couldn’t share with me and I would just have to deal with it. I was hurt and immediately started to withdraw but then I realized he needed my prayers, so I hit my prayer closet and began praying. As I was praying a peace came over me and I heard that still small voice say ‘You are not alone, just hang on a little longer. It will all be ok’. You see, God didn’t promise us that there won’t be times of being hurt or fearful of what the future may hold but He did promise that if we will cry out to Him & seek Him then He is faithful to help us. 
His promises are true! He will never leave you, nor forsake you. No matter how bad things are, He is there, giving you strength to take that next step, lifting you up and fighting for you, Seek Him, lean on His promises and trust that He will help you through this, just as He has helped you through the other times, because you are never alone!!
