God is Near

When your world turns upside down and your soul is overwhelmed;
when all turn from your side, the Lord will accomplish what concerns you.
For the sovereign Lord helps me and I will not be disgraced.
In the day of adversity consider, God has made the one as well as the other.
God is near to all who call on Him in truth.
Blessed be the Lord my rock,
my stronghold and deliverer,
my shield and He in whom I take refuge.
How blessed is he whose hope is in the Lord.
Psalms 138:8; 141:1-2; 142:3; 145:4,18; 146:5; Ecclesiastes 7:14; Isaiah 50:7

I am so thankful for hope in God! I would have already been locked up in a mental institution if I didn't have "something" to believe in. God IS my everything. I don't know what you are going through but I hope you get some relief soon.

Thanks Beth,
I am ok, I just have certain times that are hard but God is always there. My second husband left recently. I try to be such a good Christian and now I have 2 divorces and I feel that something must be wrong with me so I have to keep my focus on God's grace and and how He sees me as "wonderfully made." My relationship with Him is where I need to keep my focus.
I don't know what people do without God in their lives. I guess we see what they do in a lot of tragic stories.
I am following a young mother with cancer on caringbridge. What an inspiration she is! My situation is minor compared to hers, the people in Haiti and a lot of others. Check her out if you have time:
