Where would I be without your strength, Lord?
Every time I falter, you are there to lift me up.
Every time I want to dissolve in despair, you are there to hold me together.
Every time I hide out, you seek me out.
Every time I want to give up, you keep me going.
Every time I stare at hopeless, you turn my head so I can see promise.
Every time I feel lonely, you are already sitting right beside me.
Thank you, Lord.
“The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed” (Psalm 34:17-18).
Laura Warfel is a widow, writer, and follower of Jesus Christ. Her greatest joy is to bring others along with her on her faith journey. In 2015, because of the encouragement of the Launch Out Conference and Jon Acuff, she launched More Than A Widow on Facebook and Twitter. Today she blogs, tweets, and posts to help widows (and those who know them) find encouragement, hope, and resources for the journey. Her goal is to help all widows live beyond the label and live as more than a widow.
