I know that there are so many folks out there that have so much more struggles and obstacles to overcome than I do...I know it in my head, but sometimes, like I know everyone does, I don't remember it in my heart. I have a selfish tendancy to think that I am the only one suffering and struggling, that I am the only one who has EVER gone thru what it is I am going thru, that no one know how I am feeling, that I am all alone in my struggle. LOL!!! Yea, and how many times did I say "I"?!?!?!?
So, for those who read this blog (all 3 of you!), I hope and pray that you know that:
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS STRUGGLED WITH THINGS!
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
WE HAVE A GOD TO TURN TO WHEN WE ARE HURTING!
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
