Frustrated and aloneIf you are going through some frustrating and difficult times, I would like to include some verses which became a real and tangible encouragement to me in one of my own most dramatic trials in life.

David, Jeremiah, and Paul could not have expressed their frustrations and anger more candidly, nor could I or anyone else have put things in better perspective than Paul did, in dealing with people (especially those you have cared about) who suddenly seem to turn on you and betray your trust and love…

God will not leave us without answers, nor will He leave us comfortless.

Romans 12:17-21

Not only do we suffer as individuals, our marriages, health, peace of mind, . . . and our children and families suffer. This doesn’t seem fair nor does it seem that relationships should turn out as they do. But they do.

At least we don’t have to “go it” alone! There is something about sharing one another’s burdens that makes all of the burdens seem much lighter. We have refuge and strength, encouragement and laughter, prayer and reinforcements in warfare when we stand together. “If one can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten thousand to flight.”
