You know those situations that are so devastating they take your breath away?
When you wonder “Where are You, God?”
And you are in a space for a long while before you can move even the tiniest step forward.
God is with you there. And He will be with you in each step as you gain your footing and get re-oriented. It all takes time and tears. I hate that this life, which was perfectly perfect by design, is has heartache. But we are not in Heaven. There are beautiful things here and they look even more beautiful against the pain and sin that we also experience.
God knows your pain. God loves you. Sometimes we are in a place where it is just God and us.
Lord, when I am in the place when everything and everyone is stripped away, let me have the faith and trust in you that you are enough. Amen.
