Beyond the Tears

39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
    he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
    because they take refuge in him. Psalm 37:39-40

Think of those in prison for Christ.
Think of those Believers whose child has gone astray.
Think of those Believers whose marriage is on the rocks.
Think of those who have been kidnapped by militant Islamists.
Think of those Believers whose spouse was suddenly snatched from them.

They may question their circumstances and cry for relief.
They may shake their fist at God to plead with Him to take away their misery.

But beyond the tears, beyond the anger and frustration, and certainly beyond their dreams of a normal life, they cling to the Rock of Their Salvation. They know what has gotten them this far, and they know who will see them through.
