It is so easy when something bad happens to want to run from God instead of draw closer. There are times when I have thought, how could God let this happen when I feel as though I'm doing everything he has guided me to do. Then I came across this verse:
Even in the depths of despair, God is still there. When I feel like running because nothing seems to be going right, God is still guiding me. It look me a while to realize that I needed to open my heart to what God was teaching me, but when I did I found a lot of joy. God is always with us, even when we may feel like he has left us all alone.
Has someone hardened your heart? A co-worker, friend, or someone from a past relationship? If so, don't close your heart to God. His intent is for us to shine and be filled with happiness. Show the negative people in your life that your light shines regardless of how much they try to break you down.
Now I will stop rambling and leave you with a song that has encouraged me recently. Don't forget to go link up to Worship Wednesday!
