I read this on a blog this morning and thought she answered the question so good that I had to cut and paste. From Hannah Brencher. She was answering questions from her readers. This is one of them.
How do you remind yourself that God is always with you, even on the hardest and darkest days?
The place to find God when you think he is in hiding? The bible. He’s always there. He’s always hanging out. He’s always got something for you. Whether it’s a Psalm or a lament or a parable, he sees you. He doesn’t go anywhere. He doesn’t get tired of you. He probably thinks it’s amusing that we are so good at assuming he’s exhausted by us. He isn’t. He’s no stranger to heartbreak. He knows the dark because he made the dark– he allowed it into the world. And you know what? Some of the most beautiful things are made in the dark. That’s you, babe. You’re the stuff of the dark and light having a battle. You’re the victory song after the light wins.
