Tough times. Everyone goes through them, at one time or another. For me, the last four months have been especially trying. I have had a family member involved in an accident, one with a chronic infection that led to several hospitalizations and surgery, another that needed an emergency room visit, and, the worst-- one lost to a terminal illness.
But, tough times bring us closer to God. My life verse through these valleys has been Isaiah 41:10 ( NIV)--"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." I write this today with firm assurance that these words are true. I have felt that righteous right hand upholding me every day.
Does this verse have special meaning to you? What scripture do you lean upon during the tough times?
