Multiple scriptures profess the steadfast faithfulness of God to remain near us during our time of difficulty. I am tired today and have much to do in my world, so I can’t take the time to look them up and post them for you. But Joshua 1:9 is one that pops to mind quickly in these days . . .
“Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Wherever . . . and in whatever!
But Abba is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
He is only faithful!
He is truly merciful!

I am so grateful for a Savior who loves me in the midst of my weakness just as much as when I am responding strong!
“This is the day the Lord has made.
I will rejoice and be glad in it!”

I miss the voice I have loved hearing since I was 14...but—
I rejoice and am glad!
