This past week, I encountered people who were seriously hurting. Sadly, they aren’t Christians, and respond very little when John and I try talking to them about the Lord. It hurts to see them in such emotional pain, especially knowing that they reject the One Who could carry them through their trials.
It makes me appreciate the Holy Spirit, Who stays with me through good times and bad. My attitude, of course, doesn’t always reflect an awareness of His presence, but He doesn’t let my lack of faith limit His faithfulness to me. He proves Himself dependable time after time! And He assures me, through Scripture, that He will actually use my trials to produce His holiness in me.
Today’s hymn seems appropriate after a week of weeping with those who weep. Whether you weep or rejoice, I pray that it will encourage you to remember His loving presence in your life.
