Sometimes we can get to know God better when He feels the furthest away. A verse that I have held on to during many low moments in my life is Psalm 34:18 which says ‘The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’

At the absolute lowest of places that those two things describe we can take comfort in the knowledge that God has said He will be comfort for us then. Often we only realise this later when we look back and see how we made it through.
