As our world grows increasingly more connected through the internet and social media, I am reminded almost daily of the tragedies in people's lives--newly detected cancer, sudden death of a loved one, a home about to be torn apart--and I am tempted to be very discouraged. Life is tough. Life is not for the weak-hearted.
Then I think about what Betsie ten Boom said to her sister before she died, "There is no pit so deep that He [God] is not deeper still." Although I cannot explain away the tragedies or the difficulties that we all face, I can rest in the heart of my Savior. We are not alone.
