The journey of life is not always easy. Sometimes giving up appears easier than going on, but when things get difficult, we can rest a while and renew our strength.

Only God knows where the path will take us, but we have our Lord's assurance, "I am with you always" (Matt. 28:20). This statement is not a metaphor or other figure of speech. He is real company. There is not one hour without His presence, not one mile without His companionship. Knowing He's with us makes the journey lighter.
