The Lord is our refuge and our strength. When one calls on the Lord, He always answers. We just don't like His answer. There is always a reason God says 'no'. God always has something better for our future.
So true! It's so nice to know that when in prayer all you can do is cry, the Lord knows the words every tear holds and when you feel you've said nothing, you've actually said more than mouth full of words could ever say! God is good!
When I call you to go through the deep waters I will be with you! I will not let you sink nor let the waves overcome you! When you walk through the fire you will not get burned! I am the Lord thy God [paraphrase]
One of my favourite verses, Romans "More than that we rejoice in our sufferings knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame"
