He'll never forsake us

~Saturday Stories~

Not too long ago I entered a contest on Go Teen Writers. Here is my entry:

Kassie flew herself down on the bed silently vowing to never get up. Then she did just that and picked up the trash from the floor, straightened up the bookshelf, and flung the dirty socks into the hamper across the room. She heard a light knock, and Michael slid the door open. “Kassie,” he cleared his throat. “Do me a favor and get out of the house.” Kassie fingered a half-finished cross-stitch pattern and then eased herself into a chair. “You know I can't.” She could hardly glance around the tiny room without remembering whose it was – or used to be. Michael bent down and peered into her face. “Rest.” “No.” Deep sighs escaped them at the same time. Kassie smiled sheepishly. After a moment she leaned in and kissed her husband. “I will. I promise. Someday.” He chuckled. “It’ll be a hard time, dear. But He’ll get us through.”

Isn't it amazing that, whatever we're going through, God will always be there? He will never leave us - even when it's hard.

"God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
    never will I forsake you.”[a]" Hebrews 13:5b (NIV)



  1. Amen! Isn't He just awesome?! :D
    Interesting entry, btw. Makes me wonder whose the room is -- or was.


    1. Yes, He is AMAZING
      Thanks! In my mind, it was their daughter's before she died. But since I didn't say that in the entry, you can imagine something else. :) Did you enter the GTW contest?
