A mother was awake most of the night thinking and talking to God about her past. At some point, she wished that God/Jesus had a physical body so He could hold and comfort her. Around 4:00 a.m. she silently started sobbing trying not to wake anyone in the house. She soundlessly said, “My Lord, my heart is breaking and needs mending.” Her 10-year son walks into the room puts his arms around her and whispers in her ear, “God is with you.” She realized God just held her.
Not the whole story, but a true story.

Joshua 1:9 (NIV) Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
