Truth to Hang Onto in the Hard

Truth to Hang Onto in the Hard

When my mother was diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer, I was thousands of miles away, living in Japan. I struggled with why God allowed such a devastating diagnosis to come three weeks after my Marine husband left for a six-month deployment. Why this? Why now? When I’m so far away?

Promises of God’s Faithfulness

We all face challenges that make us feel alone, trials that make us wonder how we will make it through the wilderness of hardship. Fear can tempt us to forget God’s love and care.


We are not alone.

The LORD your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, just as a man carries his son, in all the way which you have walked until you came to this place’”–Deuteronomy 1:30-31.

What a clear picture of the love of God.  Embedded in these words are principles of God’s love in the trials and transitions we wander through:

God goes before us—we are not alone.

When we find ourselves in the wilderness (difficulties and confusion) on our way, God will bring us through with loving care.

There are times when God carries us, just as a father carries his child.

Psalm 63

God seeks out a place for us.

Grab hold of this truth and don’t let go.
