SoulQuest: Graduate Student Spiritual Care
Never As Bad As It Seems
The middle of the night is probably the worst…you wake up and the thing that is most weighty seems to occupy your whole mind. And it grows larger with each passing moment. In the dark silence of the night, the Enemy has a heyday. Your burden gets heavier and the whole situation – whatever it is – looms larger and overwhelms you. A wayward child, a low grade, loss of a job, growing debt. You name it and it gets unbearable. When your whole disposition seems to crumble under the weight of it all, remember this: “I will never leave you nor forsake you!” Those are Jesus’ words to you. Implicit within them is the deep and motivating love He has for you. So much that He will be with you in every situation. And frankly, in the lonely moments of the night when things overtake your heart, knowing that Jesus is with you makes you realize it’s never as bad as it seems!
Should you have a prayer request, reply to this note and I’ll be sure our Prayer Partners pray.
