Tuesday, Fourth Week of Lent

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

In times of trouble we often go to the one's we depend upon, the one's we trust with our very lives. As children we go to our parents when we hurt, as adults it is our spouse, or our best friends. Either way there is someone we go to for guidance, to help with our hurts and troubles. Many of us, in times of trouble also go to the Lord for his divine help. Which is what he ask of us, to go to him, but all too often we don't continue to seek him in the many areas of our life, or keep him as the focus of our lives. It kind of reminds me of how we use people in our lives. Your my friend, but the only time I see you is when you have a problem. Or we have no time for them, until we need them. It is amazing that we use God the same way. Occasionally we will pray to him, think of him, but guaranteed when we have trouble we run to him, hoping he will answer us.

No matter what God is with us always, he truly is our refuge and strength, even when we tend to forget him. Maybe today we will make it a point to think of him for no particular reason other than to say thank you.
