We've got this! We will get through this! We all fear the unknown. We feel stuck and even a bit trapped. We will get through this, as God assures us he is with us.

Out of the lion’s den for Daniel, the whale’s belly for Jonah, and prison for Paul. Through the Red Sea onto dry ground. Through the wilderness, through the valley of the shadow of death. Through! It’s a favorite word of God’s! Isaiah 43:2 says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you…when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned” (Lucado, 2020).

It won’t be painless. God doesn't guarantee the absence of struggle. If fact, it's in struggle where light is found. The key is to keep looking for it. If you are relentless about anything, be relentless about seeking God during these tumultuous times.

Adapted from and inspired from Max Lucado's book, You'll Get Through This: Hope and Help for Turbulent Time
