When tribulation strikes, when unspeakable atrocities stare us in the face, are we going to be like the disciples, hiding in a room, leaving town, forgetting what He said would happen, what He has promised us?

“I will never leave or forsake you.”

“I have plans for you, to give you a future and a hope.”

“I have given you all things that pertain to life and godliness.”

“I am the way, the truth, the life.”

“I am the shepherd. My sheep hear my voice.”

“I collect your tears in a bottle.”

“You are the apple of my eye.”

“Nothing can separate you from the love of Christ.”

“If I be lifted up, I draw all men to me.”

“I am the vine, you are the branches.”

“I am the light of the world.”

“I have loved you with an everlasting love.”

“I will replace your heart of stone with a heart of flesh.”

“I have left you a comforter who will teach you all things.”

“I am coming back.”
