Every Step Of The Way

I'm usually a very strong minded person, that is to say, I usually don't  let things overwhelm me or get me down. Any and every time things start clogging up on me, I turn t the Word of God for strength and guidance. Then and again I get these time everything gets cloudy, and I can't see my way thru, even though I know that God is going to bring me thru whatever it is. The Bible tells me in Psalm 46 that: "1 God is our refuge and strength,
       an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
       and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,  though its waters roar and foam
       and the mountains quake with their surging.

 When I read these words I get a ton of encouragment even though things are still going in circles. It tells me that regardless of whatever, God never leaves us or forsakes us, and He never gives us or allows us more than we can handle, and He doesn't always deliver us from a thing, but will anoint us to go thru it or them. We get our strength...let me say it this way...pain is weakness leaving the body. When you're going thru depression, there is alot of mental and emotional pain, and when you find that in spite of the pain, you're still here and still moving, and in time all of that pain will dissipate, and if you just keep your mind stayed on the Lord...well just try it, you'll see what I'm saying.

I'm going thru a lot right now, and have been for more than a couple of years now, but every time I look around I can see the Lord at work in my life, strengthening me...and I can see and feel the pain leavce my body. Just to be able to write these words gave me strength, hope it's done the same for you.
