HOPEFULLY WE HAVE all had our fringe moments as well – those times when divine light breaks through the darkness to remind us that God is with us. Those times when God uses common, ordinary, everyday times like sitting in a Starbucks or driving to the grocery store to get our attention. Those times when God uses common, ordinary, everyday people to offer words of wisdom and grace to us.
“I am the LORD your God,” reads Isaiah 41:13. I am. God was, is, and has always been.
We are never alone. Yes, bad things happen and evil exists in the world, but God is always with us. We have never been abandoned.
Go, and see that God is with you.
