Look around, it could be worse. This doesn't mean that what we are going through isn't difficult, but it could be worse. Our challenges aren't any less important than someone else's, but they could be worse. We often think that we are at "the bottom" and life is out of control. The truth is that we rarely get to "the bottom". God typically steps in before we get to "the bottom". He won't give us more than we can handle. But even if we do get to "the bottom", he will lift us up.
Lord, thank you for always protecting me from myself and when I feel I am without any hope, you are always there.
