When Pain Pales in God’s Presence | Tim Holley
When we’ve walked pain for a long time, we can feel powerless in it – and it’s in those moments when we need to be reminded that God’s power and faithful presence are greater than our pain. He can and will give us comfort and hope in Himself.

He Will Bring You Through (Psalm 23, Part 2) | Curtis Gilbert
Psalm 23 brings to bear both the hills and valleys of life. David writes about lying down in green pastures and also describes walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Although we have a tendency to not accept the reality of our valleys, they are needed to mold us. Our good Shepherd leads us not just to them, but through them. In our suffering, He is there.

The Lord is My Shepherd | Curtis Gilbert
When you read Psalm 23, how do you see the Lord in these verses? Do you see him as your personal Shepherd? The Shepherd that satisfies, that supplies? This psalm points the reader’s eyes to God’s character before it points to His conduct. We are reminded that this Shepherd is constant, generous, and restorative. How has He been your Shepherd?

A Song for the Redeemed | Carlos Smith
No matter what’s going on in your life, God is still good. The heart song of Psalm 107 is for the one who has been rescued from trouble, saved from the storm. Its words remind us that God always delivers us in our time of need and that when He comes through, our right response is to sing the song of the redeemed – a song of thanksgiving.
