Not Forgotten

"Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained. And the waters receded continually from the earth." (Genesis 8:1-3a NKJV) All bad things come to an end eventually. God does not let trials and tests last forever. And, even when God is testing you, you are never out of His sight, mind or reach. God is watching over through the good times AND the bad. We need to remember, when going through trials, that God is still with us, protecting us, caring for us, and that we are in God's hands. God does limit our trials and tribulations, both in length and intensity, and He never gives us more than we can handle WITH HIS HELP, although it may sometimes seem like it. The exception to this is that we are responsible for our actions, and must deal with the consequences of them. So, the next time you go through a flood, hurricane, tornado, tsunami, or ANY kind of trial, remember God is there with you helping you get through it. He will never leave you or forsake you!
