“I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me.” I decided to evaluate this verse today as I watched a close friend of mine crumble before my eyes. I was not able to help her and there was nothing that I could do to change what was occurring. It broke my heart to have to see someone who is so strong everyday have something occur that tears him or her apart. I realize this happens to most people, and those around them feel helpless in their time of need. Although I may not always be able to connect with what some are going through I still really want to be there for others. This verse has become quite important for me at this point in my life. I have begun to understand that God will answer your prayers when things get tough. I have started to ask God for help when I feel like I am in distress, I’ve been told he wants us to open up to him and tell him what’s going on in our lives. Ever since I started speaking to him and really opening up I started to see a change in how things were playing out in my life. I have put all my trust in Him to lead me the right way in life and it’s been great lately. We may not be able to hear from God at all times but we must know that he is always listening, he does not want any of his children to suffer through things that he could very well brighten up if he was simply just asked. All the best to all of you, and I hope you’ve all had a great day. I’m sure things can only go up from here if you’re someone who is truly struggling right now.
