Help in Troubled Times -Free Download- Promise


I encountered this gentleman last weekend while hiking. He’s an elderly man who slowly walked with a cane. He seemed very friendly as he passed by and even complimented my dog. I really don’t know much more about him.

As he was almost out of sight when I wondered….Is he a widower? Does he have family? Has he lived a hard life?

Then I thought…Does he know that he isn’t alone? Alone in life, I mean, not the fact that there is another person and a dog on the same trail.

There are many promises in the bible, all are comforting but I especially gravitate towards the ones that reassure me that I’m never alone.

For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Heb 13:5b

“Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matt 28:20b

We don’t have to figure everything out. Our God wants us to seek His help. The weight can be lifted off of your back. *sigh of relief*
If you need further convincing, just take a look at this verse in reference to God:

Because His compassions fail not, they are new every morning…
Lam 3:22-23

Not only are we not alone but compassion for us is renewed every day. Wow, that’s humbling.
