Into all our lives troubles come. Sometimes we feel so alone and discouraged, like there’s no way we’ll be able to get through it. But Jesus is someone who walks with us. All we need do is reach for His hand.
When trials and tribulations show up, we can turn to Him.
When storms come on and rough waters surround us, we can pray, pray, pray for God’s deliverance.
When we feel lost or overwhelmed by discouragement, God is still with us. Jesus doesn’t forsake us.
He comes and powerfully calms the storms. He quiets the waves and restores peace and order.
Sometimes we feel so hopeless and sad. But pray and trust in the Lord. Pray and trust.
Don’t lose hope. Help will arrive.
Sometimes we feel trapped, like there’s no solution. We’re in a box and there’s no way out.
But Jesus can bring a breath of fresh air. He or other people can point to solutions. Their walking with us helps us breathe easier.
Cry out for help! Let God and all the world know you’re hurting.
Help often comes when you least expect it. Sometimes from sources you’d never imagine.
Jesus himself will walk alongside you and comfort you, or sometimes the Holy Spirit comes by.
Light can show up in the darkest places, unusual places we weren’t thinking of. And we can be lights in the darkness too. We can reach out to help others going through. We can smile, or give a hug and show we care.
As the Lord Jesus taught us, it’s pretty simple: “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22: 37-39).
