“How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?” – Psalm 13:1–2
Sometimes, our struggles in life seem as though they will never end. We experience pain in a lot of ways. People experience pain through health issues, relationship problems, addictions, loss of a loved one, and many others. Just recently, I know someone whose pet cat passed away. Even if pets are not human like us, people can love them as if they’re human. The pain can be tremendous, and it could go on for a very long time.
This is where the care and comfort of our Heavenly Father step in. The Lord cares for us deeply, and we can go to Him with our pain and loss. He will never forsake us. In our times of pain and weakness, we can always reach out to Him. We can lift up to Him all of our pain and anxiety and He can wipe it all away with His mighty hand.
God’s unfailing love will carry us throughout our journey and we can rejoice in His salvation.
Dear Lord God,
Please guide us in our daily lives and watch over us. We have enemies who have been trying to hurt us every day. We are reaching out to you to always be by our side. In our seemingly endless moments of struggles in life, we ask you to wrap your arms around us and embrace us when we feel weak. We wouldn’t know what direction to walk in if you’re not beside us. We ask this, in your holy name, Amen.
