Do you ever feel like God doesn't even see you in your struggle? Like maybe He's just too busy running the world to be bothered by your problems? If so, I know I know exactly how you feel. As I sat by the window, tears streaming down my face, I couldn't help but wonder if God even saw me. I was going through a difficult time, and it felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders. In my YouTube video I tell crazy story about the house across the street. (WATCH IT HERE)
Years later as I open my Bible, I am reminded that God is always with us, even in the darkest of times.
One of the most comforting verses in the Bible is Psalm 23:4, which says,
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." This verse reminds us that no matter what we are going through, God is with us and is our source of comfort. Another verse that brings peace in difficult times is Isaiah 41:10, which says,
"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." This verse reminds us that God is our strength and our helper in times of need.
Even when it feels like the whole world is against us, and we are all alone, we can take comfort in knowing that God sees us and cares for us. In Psalm 34:18 it says, "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." God sees our struggles and is close to us in our brokenness.
In Matthew 10:29-31 Jesus says, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” This verse reminds us that God cares for every aspect of our lives, even the small things that we might not think are important.
God is always with us and cares for us, even in the darkest of times. As we trust in Him and look to the Bible for comfort, we can find peace and hope in the midst of our struggles.
