Take heart. God sees your troubles and will keep you close to Him so you are not strained to the point of breaking. That is His promise. And from even the lowest depths of your affliction, He will restore your life again, either in this world or the next.
“Though the winds may blow and the storms may come, yet my heart beats warm with the love of God.”
