The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:17-18)
Have you ever noticed they don’t put guys who are cold, wet, and hungry on recruiting posters? The fact of the matter is, as a soldier, sometime or another, you’ll be all three (and probably all at the same time). That’s the reality of being a soldier. The same is true for the Christian life. God does not promise a painless life but He does promise He’ll get you through it. He will make a way through those tough circumstances. Our job is to endure and trust in Him as He guides us through the storm.
