Mosquitoes with Flashlights

Thomas LaMance told this story – When my grandson, Billy, and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, “It’s no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights.”

Try as you might, sometimes you cannot avoid life’s difficulties.  The writer of Hebrews reminds us of the good news that God has promised that He will be with us in whatever circumstances in which we find ourselves. “God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you’” (Hebrews 13:5).
