Knowing that someone is there for you when you need them always provides a sense of assurance. Sadly, during difficult times, those we sometimes expect to be there for us - Disappear. One story tells of a mother in a deep family crisis with her husband. As things got worse, the many friends that she had when things were "better," suddenly pulled themselves out of the picture. They stopped calling. They stopped visiting. They stopped offering advice.
You see, this lady's husband was quite a popular figure in society and no one wanted to utter a word against his wrong doing, so they kept quiet and stayed away. Yes - I know, you are probably thinking of some situation in your life, or the life of a close love one to which you can relate. These occurences happen ever so often. Every Hour. Every Day. Every Month. Every Year.
If you haven't met face to face with such a situation, you probably will sooner or later.
The encouraging fact is found in Isaiah 58: 9. When everyone else disappears. When no one else seems to care. When friends and family forsake you. You can simply CRY out to God for help and his ready response will be. Here am I.
Why not tell God what's on your mind right now - He can help!
