Sometimes when the pressures of life press us down we feel like God is far away, but this is the time when he ever so close. He is the one who gives us the strength to carry on.
If it were not for the hard and dry times we would not have the relief and victory to celebrate.
Today as you face the difficult time remember that the reason you can face each new day it is because you have the God of refuge and strength who is always with you in times of trouble.
Be encouraged by Psalm 46: 1 -5
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
Though its waters roar and foam, and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
