Are you hurting today? I’m sorry. I can’t give you answers, but I can remind that you matter. The author of an ancient letter called Hebrews pens these words from the mouth of the creator of the universe. “I will never let you down, never walk off and leave you.” I’ve found that to be true, even when life is no more than a scant tree on a barren hilltop bent to the ground by brutal, bitter winds.
That tree survives because of its roots. You will too, my friend. Let your roots soak in the truth that you are not alone. You matter. All storms eventually give way to sunlight again. I sometimes invite people to, “hang in there like a hair in a biscuit.” Do that today. Hang on for you and those who love you. This storm will pass.
