But we shouldn't be feeling this way because it shows where our faith fails, where we fall short of God's plan for us, where we trust Him the least. God didn't send His only son to die one of the most horrible deaths for us to feel sorry for ourselves. One of my favourite sayings is "Don't doubt in the dark what you knew in the light". If we trusted our lives to God and knew He had a plan for us then why would we ever doubt? When we are in messy situations that's when we tend to take our focus off the Solution and onto the problem before us. It's an easy trap to fall into.
When these trials, problems and feelings come along, remember to whom you belong. Your Father and King wouldn't forsake you in the times when you struggle and need Him the most. He says in the Bible that He will never leave nor forsake you! Why would He start now. Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full in His wonderful name. When you feel unloved, unimportant or insecure remember that you have the Kings of kings and Lord of lords holding your hand every step of the way. He never lets go, so we need to make sure we hold on.
"I know Who goes before me, I know Who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side."
