He is always beside me. I think this is a great verse (reminder) for the hurting people who are in extremely difficult times! If you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior, He is always there for you! Be encouraged! Especially for our brothers and sisters in the Philippines! HE knows your struggles, each and every one! He will be there through your dark and trying times! He WILL NOT FORSAKE YOU!!!
For those of you who thank God for his unconditional love and support, I ask to you- do you love others as God loves you? Think about this as you turn your nose at civil unions, or unemployment benefits, or equal pay for equal work, or people of other cultures living in "your" country, or the homeless person you yell at to "get a job". Just stop and think about what would happen if God did not love you unconditionally & you may understand how someone being discriminated against might feel.
