Bread for the Journey

And be sure of this...
I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:20 NLT
Sometimes, as the darkness closes in on us...
we feel like we are all alone...
out on the deep, blue sea.

I know there have been times in my life when everything looked dark.
I was filled with fear...
and felt completely alone.

During these times...
though I could not see or hear God...
He was still there...
working on my behalf to carry me through my dark place.

When we go through these times in life, we have two choices.
We can try to fix things our way...
or we can turn to God...
and allow Him to carry us through.

In Jeremiah 29:13 God promises...
When you seek me with all your heart you will find me.

Call on Him and then face the darkness with Him.
He speaks, even in the night.
He gives hope.
He never leaves us or forsakes us.
We are never alone.
He is with us!

Sunday blessings,


  1. Thank you. That was perfectly spoken and much needed.

  2. Beautiful post....spoken to my heart. I think we have all gone through those times where we just have to trust that God is there....even thought we feel alone. That is the beauty and one of the assurances of our faith in Christ. Kathy

  3. Thank you for the beautiful post - something that I needed to hear.

  4. I can well remember a time when I felt that darkness inside the storm ...and I remember being comforted by a song that said, sometimes God calms the storm and sometime He calms His child. I just had to trust. .. and He did bring us through.

  5. Such truths . .so beautifully spoken. What a wonderful Saviour we serve.

  6. Spoken to my heart as well, thank you. I'm a young mum who loves your blog :)
