You are with me.

Over the past year, I have had a lot of difficulties. In particular I have had a lot of problems with people saying things about me that are not true.

A few days ago, after talking with a brother in Lebanon and hearing some other things that are being said, I took some time to pray about it. Afterwards, I was thinking over the day, and heard the following lyrics from an Arabic Hymn

"Though I walk through the desert you are with me,
It is only in the desert that I can hear your voice saying clearly to me,
'I am with you.'"

Often it is only during our times in the "desert" that we can truly hear His voice.

It is only in the desert that we can truly learn to be thankful for things like, water.

If you are having a "time in the desert" today, I just would like to remind you that though you walk through the desert he is with you.

Another lyric also comes to mind, that I hope will help you today as it has helped me.

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But, Lord, ‘tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
