“…we are persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:7-15)
Sometimes life gets the best of us. We feel beat down and depressed.
In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul encouraged them to stay the course and be patient. He pointed out that they may be down (persecuted and struck down) but they are never out (not abandoned and not destroyed) as long as they keep Jesus in their heart.
We too struggle at times. Unfortunately, we tend to turn away from God when we need Him most! Rather than blame God when times are tough, we should be asking Him to share the burden with us. He will always say, “Yes.” He will never abandon us.
