Life takes us many places...sometimes places where we do not choose to go. There are moments when we wish things were different; there are times when we desperately seek answers, and there are none. Yet, even in life's most trying journeys, there is One who never leaves us alone. He is forever at our side. His hand is outstretched to take ours and draw us closer. We must cease fighting those Hands of Mercy and must be willing to go where He leads, knowing all the while that He will not leave or forsake us...even in the loneliest nights we face.
