“I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul.”
Have you ever felt at any point in your life that no one cared? I know, it sounds like such a “teenager” thing to say, but I can honestly say that I have felt so weighed down by the cares of life that it really did seem like no one cared.
This obviously was not the case as I have always been surrounded by an amazing circle of family and friends, but in those moments of anguish and confusion, you feel completely alone and isolated.
In those seasons of life when we feel absolutely and utterly alone in our struggles – God is with us. All the nights you silently wept salty tears into your pillow, He was right there with you.
He surrounds you always, and cares so much for you. He cares about the anguish of your soul and He wants to comfort you.
When you are distressed, He cares.
When you are broken and hurt, He cares.
When life is just too overwhelming and you are struggling to cope, He cares.
He wants to hide you under the shadow of His wings. It’s a place of refuge from the storm.
Prayer: God, I am thankful that You care for me. You take such good care of me, and I ask today that You hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
