A praise song we sing at church is titled, “You Are the Air I Breathe.” Maybe you’ve heard it. The lyrics remind us that God is everything to us. If he left us, we would be desperate for his return. We can’t live without him! Though God never leaves us, sometimes it can feel that way. Sometimes in the midst of a hard trial, health or otherwise, it can be normal to feel alone in our pain. But we don’t ever have to feel God isn’t always there for us. With all our sins and other shortcomings Jesus took upon himself on the cross, he suffered that feeling of abandonment for us too.
