The winners are: 1. JayandKristaBrubacher.... 2. faithwalkingmom.... 3. Liftupyourhearts

Life sure can be hard! And sad! It's easy to wonder why God allows things, doesn't work faster, or seems to be aloof from our woes and cares, and hard to walk in faith in such times. Yet, God is our strength and fortress. He hears, He cares, He loves us, He is working all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
I am praying for His nearness to be palpable for all who commented. That the God of all comfort would hold you close and encourage and refresh your hearts with His presence. He is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. His understanding is infinite. I can say like David, like I have never seen the righteous forsaken. Yep, it can feeeeeeeeel like it at times (boy, don't I know!!!), but God's word stands - "I will never leave you nor forsake you......... You are loved with an everlasting love."
Keep praying, remain in the Word, hold steady in the faith -- God is faithful! His Word is true - believe!
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast...
