Hi there! I'm so glad you came back for another Wisdom for Wednesday!
This phrase was taken out of an even more powerful quote that I'd like to share...
"...whatever struggles may come, whatever temptations may overwhelm, or whatever thunderclouds may burst over your heads, you shall not be deserted, much less destroyed."
What a comfort to know the Lord is always with us--no matter our circumstances. Sometimes it is hard to see how He can be at work through the difficult times in our life, but we can trust Him. He has not deserted us.
Several years ago, after one of my friends died in a car accident, these are the verses the Lord gave me to cling to:
I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
As long as we live on this earth, there will be trials and tragedies that we don't understand. I have to hold on to my faith and believe that God is good...all the time.
