The Lord is There.

Due to circumstances beyond his control, a winsome young man has found himself in a disappointing job. Day after day he enters a prison-like gray cubicle. He doesn’t see sunshine. Or clouds.

He struggled with depression. Until now. Every morning he enters his cubicle and pauses to imagine Jesus. Sitting there. Waiting for him.

He is finding joy.

The Lord has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).”

Feeling Far From God?

David felt that way, so he prayed: “I cry by day, but you do not answer, and by night, but I find no rest” (Psalm 22:2).

He also prayed truth: “You are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. In you our fathers trusted; they trusted and you delivered them” (Psalm 22:3-4).

Pray honestly, and remember what’s true. God “has said, ‘I will never leave you or forsake you’ ” (Hebrews 13:5).
