I am grateful that my fellowship with the Lord is not based on how I feel. If it did, I would have difficulty on many occasions because my feelings are so dependent on circumstances.
The wonderful thing about spending time with Him is that all I have to do, no matter how my emotions are affecting me, is be still. In the silence of the moment I am able to focus on the reality that He is always with me, no matter what the situation is that I am facing. It is amazing to me that just knowing that awakens His peace and joy in my spirit.
Even if I am surrounded by chaos, I can remember the cross and look unto Jesus who, because of the joy set before Him, endured the pain and anguish He was experiencing.
I pray that He will Help me to continually be aware of His presence in the stillness of every event that happens.
