Never alone...

I read Psalm 118 this morning, not knowing that I would hear Bro David preach about "Don't stop praying, when God is silent". I had just been thinking about how I pray and pray and pray, and it seems there is no answer. Of course, I know, that no answer probably means, "NO not now, or maybe it means later or maybe it just means NO". But no matter the answer, I know God is with me.

Psalm 118: 6

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid...

I know God is with me, and I know God answers prayer, and I know I should have faith and continue my bible study and prayer. I know that consistency works, I know that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, so I AM going to continue praying for the people I love the most and need my God.

I could not help but think about me as a mother in relation to this verse. My child goes through hard situations, and I cannot make circumstances change or make them easy. BUT, I am with her all the time, I am with her through everything, I am with her when she laughs and when she cries, I am with her no matter what. If I feel this way about her, what must God, the creator of all things, feel about me. We are never alone even if the answer is NO. Ponder this one!


  1. So good Lorri! I love your analogy about your child - and being a child of God. I think we all can make the same comparison. Thank you for the reminder!
