I definitely am right now. I need some prayer partners
Whenever I hear common saying’s about who God is, I never really think about them. They are just something that go in one ear and out the other. I never really think about them. Today I was listening to a song and the singer said “You are a bridge over troubled water.” This was the first time that I ever actually thought about that phrase. God truly is my bridge over troubled water. He is my clear and safe path, specifically ordained for me so that I can escape any peril set before me. If anyone had the option to walk across a dry bridge versus struggling to cross through a rushing river, why would they choose the latter? God makes our way straight, plain and clear. He is The Way (Truth and Life). I feel honored and blessed that He cares about my safety and security. He truly is my provision; my bridge over troubled water. For me that water often consists of many different things (sin: idolatry, slothfulness, worry, and doubt…just to name a few). He offered himself to be a bridge just for me. How could I choose to cross by any other way.
Man…this really hurts. Continue to pray for his family and friends.
Rev 21:4 and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
There is no pain that we feel that God hasn’t already overcome. Turn to Jesus, give him your worries, concerns, and doubt. Trust in Him and allow him to heal you.
Depression is real, if anyone ever needs a listening ear. I am here.
My mom and I decided to take a trip to the wonderful world of Walmart today to pick up some cat food and paper towels. While wandering down the isles of messily stocked shelves, I began to tell her more about my friend Julia.
You see, Julia was in a freak accident that left her severely…
