This is Kathy Bennett, Cottonwood Creek’s Women’s Minister, with your inspirational thought of the day…

Have you ever been in the midst of a personal crisis only to feel that your friends have vanished?  At times like this, it is important to remember the ONE who promises to be there for you at all times.  During our most trying moments when we have nothing left to sustain us, we can find strength in God.  He does not set aside a reserve of grace to help us months later; we get exactly what we need when we need it.  Our father says, “I will never fail or abandon you” (Hebrews 13: 5).  And, He will not break that promise.  We may never know why friends forsake us when we need them, but here is one possibility.  Maybe God is teaching us to rely on Him.  Sometimes the only way we will lean on Him is when we find that all other support is gone.

Let us consider His faithfulness in our next struggle.

Have a blessed day,

Kathy Bennett
