Paul Trip, in his excellent book, A Shelter in the Time of Storm: Meditations on God and Trouble, reminds us that God is always near to help ... but there is something we must do. Please read on . . .
"You can be sure of this; your day of trouble will come. Yet, in your trouble God hasn’t left you alone. What is it that he gives you in your trouble? He gives you himself! He is what will keep you safe. He is near, and he comes to you armed with transforming grace and liberating wisdom. But it’s vital that you live with eyes and heart open to what Scripture says to you about you and the world in which you live. If you do, you’ll live in a way that’s humble and needy, seeking the grace and wisdom that you so desperately need and that God so willingly and lovingly gives. Be realistic. Remember, there’s amazing grace for every realistic thing you’ll be called to face."
I trust you will be seeking HIM for the amazing grace that ONLY he can give!
