All of us have moments — most of us have many of them — when we feel utterly alone and forgotten by God. When life crashes in around us, even after we’ve tried to do all the right things in all of the right ways, there are still times when we feel like God is out helping someone else. There’s no avoiding those moments of utter despair.
In those moments we have a choice to make. Either we choose to believe that the Lord is not surprised and will use the storm for His own purposes and good will ultimately come out of the storm. And that may mean – we never know the good, but we trust that good will come.
