God Is Faithful

Cynthia Yates shares her lowest point during her divorce. She says, "My son and I were put out in the snow on Christmas Eve. I found myself homeless and penniless with a little child, stranded in a log cabin in the Rocky Mountains in the middle of a snowstorm. I had a diet pop and a can of tuna fish, and I didn't have a can opener. You could say it was the lowest point of my life—until you look at the next day, Christmas Day, when I crawled around on all fours in a broken-down old van my son and I had traveled across the country in, looking for sunflower seeds we might have dropped so I could have something to feed him. That was probably the lowest point in my life.

"I had nothing—and that's the moment when I had more than I ever had in my life because that's when God the Holy Spirit started flooding my heart and filling all those empty spaces.

"We live in a fallen world. Christians distinguish themselves by how they handle the hardship that comes their way. It's a matter of trust, and your trust must be in our Holy God. He will direct your path. I am living proof."

The answers to Cynthia's prayers began coming right away, in ways that Cynthia could never have expected. God is always faithful, and her passionate plea to you today is to trust Him.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6).
