When things get hard, it can feel like the foundations of your life are giving way. It is good to remember that our foundation is firm, based on the finished work of Jesus Christ for us. There are some things that remain true, at all times and for all of God’s children no matter what. It’s good to let your mind and your heart rest in these truths. Read these aloud. Remember:
I am loved. (Jeremiah 31:3)
I am secure. (John 10:28-29)
I am forgiven. (Colossians 2:13)
God is with me. (Hebrews 13:5)
Type these up and keep them handy for when the storms come. Paste them in your journal. Tape them to the bathroom mirror.
For the storms will come beloved. The wind will howl and the waters will rise. And Jesus, who calmed the storm, who is indeed able to calm all storms, is now and ever will be your ever present help in times of trouble.
