When you feel you've lost it all...

I remember the chorus of the song I sang at one of the services at our old church before; it’s called “Jesus Will Still Be There”. Yes, even when we’re stressed, dismayed, confused, depressed, and lonely or whatever negative feeling that may try to grip us, know that God’s hands are not too short to save us.

I am always humbled at the thought that nowhere in the scripture did Jesus promise us that life will always be easy and filled with calmness and joy. But He does promise to be with us, no matter how stressful life may seem at any given moment. During times of stress and fatigue in our lives, be encouraged to know that we can turn to Jesus for comfort and reassurance. And as we recognize His presence, He gives us peace. When doubts threaten to swamp us, we can turn to Him.

It’s a great feeling to acknowledge that Jesus Christ has been faithful in the past; He is faithful in the present, and He will be faithful in the future.

Please allow me to share the lyrics of the song to you and I pray that the Lord will use these words to comfort you during the difficult times of your life.

Things change, plans fail
You look for love on a grander scale
Storms rise, hopes fade
And you place your bets on another day

When the going gets tough
When the rides too rough
When you’re just not sure enough

Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as the steady rain

Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He’ll still be loving you

When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

Time flies, hearts turn
A little bit wiser from lessons learned
But sometimes, weakness wins
And you lose your foothold once again

When the going gets tough
When the rides too rough
When you’re just not sure enough
When it looks like you’ve lost it all
And you haven’t got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

I hope this has blessed you more than it continues to bless me. Friends, if anxiety and dread are lurking around your tomorrow, remember God's wonderful promise, "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." So, lift your head up for the Lord is with you every step of the way.

Have a JOYFUL day!
