Behind The Smile


Jesus knows the hurt behind the smiles.

He knows the pain behind your “I’m fine, thanks.”

He knows the burdens of your heart behind your “It will be okay, really.”

He knows the chaos in your mind behind the outward appearance of peace you show to others.

He knows every little thing that’s going on behind your eyes.

He catches all of your tears, even the silent ones.

He loves you beyond any measure we can ever fathom.

You are His and He shall never let you go.

Deuteronomy 31:6
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”

When you are in your darkest hour and no one else is seemingly around, don’t be afraid. Jesus IS there right beside you, carrying you through. He will NEVER leave us high and dry. He has promised us, as written in Scripture, to never leave or forsake us.

We must keep the faith and have trust that He knows what He is doing and will help us get through our bleakest moments.
