Sometimes life is just disheartening. We are not promised an easy life, but we absolutely can find peace, joy, and strength in the Lord. He truly is our strength and our shield, in every situation. It is easy to lose sight of that as we walk through the mundane, the difficult, and the painful things of life. Rest assured, though, the Lord is there and He cares for you more deeply than you can comprehend.
He does hear your pleas. So I encourage you, fall back into the Lord, who is your strength and your shield, and let your heart exult.
Have a beautiful Friday, friends!
