Our best bet as children of God is to keep calling on the Lord. He is merciful and gracious. Whatever we may be going through, let us keep close to Him. In good times He helps us focus on Him and prevents us from going astray. In tough times He will help us not to give up. When we err and sincerely repent He will restore us. When we are under attack He will protect us. Lamentations 3:55-58.
