Faith Friday: He is close

As I was reading one of my favorite blogs about a family serving in Haiti a few weeks ago, I ran across a verse that I had not noticed before. It has been stuck in my head ever since so I thought it would be good to share.

The verse is from a book in the Old Testament book of Nahum. Nahum was known as a prophet and as you can tell, his writing style was very poetic.

The Lord is good,
a strong refuge when trouble comes.
He is close to those who trust in him.
~ Nahum 1:7

I think it is interesting that it says “when” trouble comes, not “if” trouble comes. I also really appreciate the reminder that God is always close – even in those difficult times.

Have a great weekend!
