    find peace in God's words I'm trusting in the Lord I know he will never forget me I am keeping the faith

    My sister just told me to read Psalm 13, and I am so glad that I did. I never doubt God, because I know that he is the ruler of all things and people. I know that God knows how I'm going to feel, before I start feeling that way. Thank you Jesus! I know he's over all of my emotions, thoughts, and this chapter explains to me to leave all of worries or frustrations up to God.

    We all have doubts in our lives,sometimes everyday,and we ask or cry out to God, why or where are You? When we are going through the tragedy of a love one this often happens. But in the midst of it all Our God Has not forgotten us. We are feeling lonely but He is there through it all. The feeling of doubt takes a hold of us for the better and thinking God is far or hiding from us. But surely He is the only one who can take us through all lost,grief,loneliness,temptation, whatever the test, struggles, situation,circumstances, sickeness, only God can . So we cry out because of our doubts but we in the end we believe in God and give Him praises and thanksgiving. All glory be to God for His everlasting Love, grace,mercies,goodness, kindness. Whatever the test, situation, circumstances, sickness, God never fails through distance He may seem,He is right there fixing it for us. Praise God. Lord Jesus we often doubt You when we become lonely , sick and otherwise Lord, but please Dear Lord help us never, not to believe in Your words and promises knowing that You will never leave or fosake us,and that You will deal with us bountifully. O Praise God. We have doubts God but our belief lies in You.God You know us and the truth about us. Amen
