We unfortunately find ourselves at times in a mindset that all that exists is us and all that will ever or has ever existed is NOW. the facts are that the world has been spinning for centuries. And it will continue to spin long after we are gone. Today is simply one day of many and we are simply one person of countless. God has always been and He will always be and our problems today, no matter how insurmountable and overwhelming they may appear to be to us, that are very small in comparison to God and His ability to help us through whatever we may face.
Lord, my pain is real but so are You and although I may feel that my world is smothering me, there is a lot more space for others and for God to help me.
