I know I haven’t posted in a while, and I’m sorry about that. I know this is really short, but I really haven’t had much to say, or the time to write it down. There are times that God wants us to teach, and times when He wants us to be taught. I have been going through a season of being taught, and it’s been really hard. Through the preparation of moving, I have to constantly remind myself that I’m not the only one who’s going through this. I have to remind myself that I’m not alone.
And we so often forget that. When we’re faced with hard situations, it’s easy to forget that God’s always there without fail. It’s hard to remember that we’re not alone in these trials.
Someone posed an interesting question recently in a class at my church: what would you do if you were on a steep, dangerous mountain, blindfolded, and there was a storm coming? People asked a lot of questions to form the right answer – could you take off your blindfold; how tall is the mountain; are you on the path? But no one asked the right question: are you alone? The answer is, you are not alone. On that dangerous mountain, you have the best trail guide with you, who has been up and down the mountain a billion times, and who can take you down safely.
The scenario was used as an illustration: we are not alone on whatever mountain we are stuck on. We have the best guide in the world with us, ready to hold our hand and carry us through whatever it is we’re facing. He is with us even through every trial, every situation. And the best part is, He never changes. He will always be with us, no matter what. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Heb. 13:8)
