God is in the "Center of It"

I don't know what's going on in your life this week, but this has been a hard one for me! I can't remember when I've had such a hard week. God is there though in the midst of it all. 

Sometimes, I think we can get so caught up in our own personal suffering that it's hard to see Him, but He's there. Sometimes, our emotions cause us to hurt so deeply that we can't see past what we feel. It's easy to call out to God and even though healing comes, sometimes it takes a while for us to actually feel it. We sometimes have to work it through in our minds. Sometimes, it's a while before we know everything is going to be okay.

I've never seen so many good people suffer. I have friends who are going through battles that touch me deeply. One in particular needs our prayers with a job-related issue. Please call out to God. He knows her name and her needs. A friend of my sister is facing surgery and she has no insurance. She's a wonderful Christian person. Please remember her.

This song by Chris August says it all. God is in the center of it all. No matter what you're going through, He knows. 

In the dark, in the light, in the good, in the hurt, in the places I hide. When I rise, when I fall, you'll be there through it all. In the start, the end, in the center of it...


  1. Very timely message for us and many people I know. God is truly in the midst of it all. I can't even imagine what we'd do without Him.

  2. Amen, Linda! You're welcome Mippy. According to a beautiful verse in Psalms, He hides us under the shadow of His wings until calamity is past. That's such a comfort!
