We've all been through tough times in one way or another and when we're in the midst of the storms of life, we don't want hear platitudes or be told to everything will be OK in time. Because at that moment nothing is OK and we don't know when it will be. But, what we do need is compassion, understanding, patience and someone who will persevere with us through the pain, grief, suffering and help us get to the other side. Although our friends, family etc can't always be there for us, I know someone who can, He'll never leave you or forsake you. His words are vines of truth, that weave tendrils of comfort, compassion and hope into the midst of our despair. He can speak to you through the bible, christian books, friends, your pastor, neighbor, a sign on the highway, a movie or even a commercial. However, God chooses to talk to you, his message is one of hope, healing, and restoration. So no matter what you're going through you're not alone. God will get you through the dark, lonely nights. He'll give you comfort, strength, peace and use your story to help someone else.
