The moments of difficulties and sadness make us forget the hours of joy. If we stop to think, we could easily see the times of joy in our lives.
We must not forget the times of joy, satisfaction and peace. But to tell the truth, the undesirable friend of sorrow, insist on staying and joining us.
If you think we are abandoned, take heart. In this day of realities and feelings, there is a very important person who joins us with much interest and care: Jesus Christ! He is always at our side. Jesus gave his life for us and now is present in us. His presence fills us with the confidence we need to overcome obstacles. You can face anything with the strength that Christ gives.
When suffering overwhelms us, Jesus accompanies us with love and understanding. He knows all things and knows our suffering. In obedience, we received approval; in sickness, his care; in rebellion, his reproach; in experience, his instruction.
Jesus is our Shepherd, and “we shall not want!”
