Are you hurting?  Are you feeling alone?  Has life handed you more than you can handle?   YOU ARE NOT ALONE.   “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Too often we hear ‘cliches’ that simply do not measure up to what the Bible says.  “God will not give you more than you can handle.”  Really?  Scripture says,

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.  Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.  2 Corinthians 1:8,9

The struggles we face will either make us bitter or better.  When we choose Jesus and lean into the Father we can know that the victory is ours through Christ Jesus.  He was hung up for our hang ups, so we can quit hanging ourselves up.

Have you messed up?  Do you feel the agony of despair?   Does it feel like the weight is more than you can bear on your own?  Cast your cares upon HIM, for He cares for you.  1 Peter 5:7. 

Today in a very generic way, I am praying for you.  I want to be a brother who ‘bears some of your burden.’  You are loved.  JESUS Loves you.  My friend…I love you.

Weeping may last for the night, but JOY comes in the morning.  Psalm 30:5
