Long Key Natural Area, Davie Florida, May 2013
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
Sometimes the hardest thing is having faith in God when God seems least at work if not altogether absent in times of great distress and anxiety. When one's faith is holding on by a thin thread. And sometimes that thread does break. How does one' s faith in God survive such difficult times? Know this: God clings to us in a love that will never let us go even when we believe that we have let go of God. When our soul shouts of God's abandonment, God offers the hand of grace and healing and stands firm with us all journey long.
