Lord, much as I wish You did, You never promised we’d have an easy life. Instead, You promised that we’d never have to face anything alone, because You would always be with us. You overcame even death, so You are surely able to defeat any troubles I face! Help me to be strong in You, knowing Your peace. Help me to trust in You, knowing that You have already overcome it all. Help me to feel Your presence with me, knowing I am never alone.
