God doesn't bubble-wrap us from trouble. He comforts us when it happens and gives us the strength to get through it. Notice it says He delivers us from our FEARS? Not the struggles? Notice, too, that the writer says he SOUGHT the Lord, and then was answered?
Joy in the Loneliness... Jesus loves us so much he desires a real relationship with each one of his children. Not just when we need him; yet that is ok-however to really get to know our Lord & Savior - our daddy we must spend time with him every single day.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts AND YOUR MINDS in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6, 7 NIV)
