Nothing will carry us through our most trying times other than abiding close to Christ. He is sitting beside us always, never leaving His dear sheep in their distress. I see Him looking deep into our eyes sympathetically, and lovingly taking us up in His arms to shield us. Our burdens are His burdens; our worries are His worries; together, He's promised to take us through them. He is our Friend, a Brother born for adversity and He doesn't leave, but devotedly stands with us when no one else can or will. We can trust Him - we can lean on His shoulder and rest peacefully in His power and grace, in the good and the bad. He's so good and able - He so dearly cares and keeps us that we need not tremble... so much so that it no longer matters about anything other than being with Him. We're His. Go to Him... He's waiting to take you close and never let you go.
