Pain is everywhere. And praise God - so is HE!

Joy is not the absence of suffering
but the presence of God.
- Elisabeth Elliot

There is no shortage of pain and suffering in the lives of those around us.
Every few days we receive news of a trial or tragedy, and there are no words that can erase the pain, change the circumstances, or stop the sorrow.
crumbling marriages
children living in hospitals
teens battling depression
aging parents
dying loved ones
physical pain and poor health
single mothers struggling to care for their precious children
families working hard to pay the bills
wayward children
depression, anxiety, and fear

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psalm 37:26

Thank You, Lord, for the beauty and truth of this verse!

The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.
Psalm 145:18
