This I Know
At least that's what Michael Stipe tells us.
It really is true, though. We all hurt. Our lives are not void of pain. We all have some pain in our stories. It just can't be avoided.
Sometimes our lives are shattered, broken. We had other plans for what it would look like. We dreamed bigger and better things than we are living. It's just not how it all turned out.
We'd like to avoid it in this future, though, wouldn't we? Control what comes our way. Keep the demons at bay. Dodge the hurt. We live wishing we could know exactly what is coming, but it's just not possible.
I don't know where you are or what lies ahead for you. I don't know what kind of scattered pieces you're trying to put back together. I don't know what form your worries and anxieties are taking these days.
But I do know this:
God will NEVER leave you or forsake you. Ever.
You are not alone. He is with you. He's in the middle of it all. He will not move. He cannot be shaken. He will shelter you while the swirling dust settles around you.
And He's got a plan for when it does.
I hope this song speaks to you and encourages you in your walking with God. He is faithful. And a beautiful refuge.
