SHORT THOUGHTS: We all go through hard times in this thing we call...life. But we never go through them alone. Oh, we may think we are alone for sure but truth is...God is right there, going through our hard times and all other times with us. His presence is with us always. When we feel we are all alone, it is not because God is not there. What is missing is our awareness...our ability to see and notice God right there all around us, in all things...everywhere, all the time.
Realizing and knowing God is there does not mean our circumstances will change because often they don't. Our circumstances, everything we go through, are there to teach us something if we will let them. But knowing we are never alone has the ability to give us strength, peace and comfort in all circumstances...if we allow it. :)

Psalm 94:16-19 (NIV)
Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers? Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
