There are moments in our lives where despair and doubt seem to be very real to us, but God’s presence with us gives us the Hope and the Promise that He is near, that He is our help in time of need. God knows the storms in any situations we’ve had. While our doubt of His grace and capability to provide for us often causes us to sink into the water, He never fails to always shower us with His mercy. He sent Jesus to give us hands of hope while we are in the mist. He will help us to complete our life journey.
