When you’re going through a tough period of time, it really can feel like you are completely on your on – Not necessarily that there’s no one living with you or around you day-to-day, but no one really understands how you feel, or even seems to care how you feel.

Maybe you’re being told to “give yourself a shake” or “things aren’t that bad”, but both those statements (plus others) are not helpful when you feel at rock bottom.

I have found in those situations that even at night when I tried to sleep, my mind was constantly active reiterating to me how hopeless things were, or how bad things looked. This usually resulted in me not getting much sleep, which in turn made it more difficult to concentrate on standard everyday tasks, again making it feel like I couldn’t do anything right anymore.

Hang on in there though, as even through those difficult times, God is still by your side. It may not feel like he is, but I can assure you he is always there, and will help you during those days. You probably won’t realise during those times that God is helping you, but believe me when you get through that time, you’ll look back and you’ll see God’s part your survival.

So keep on believing God is with you, as he will help you through your storm.

Keep the Candle Burning by Point of Grace

You think you’re alone there in your silent storm
But I’ve seen the tears you’ve cried falling down and trying to drown
The flame of hope inside
Let me tell you now, tell you now
When you’re walking in the dead of night
And your soul is churning
When your hope seems out of sight
Keep the candle burning
All it takes is one steady heart in a world that’s turning
Shine a light and pierce the dark
Keep the candle burning
Keep the candle burning
When you’re down and you’re discouraged
When the darkness clouds your view
You’ve got to gather up your courage
You know the lord is gonna see you through
Let me tell you now
Tell you now
One ray of light always breaks through
Follow wherever he takes you
Wherever he takes you
