I am holding a candle I bought a week ago. It is Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I light it everyday for my family and friends and say a prayer for them. It comforts me.. Her face is so very gentle and filled with compassion. We need that in our world. People who are filled with compassion. It makes life so much better.
These are some scriptures I read this evening that I thought might encourage you.
Give your burdens to the Lord. He will carry them. He will not permit the godly to slip or fall.
You have seen me tossing and turning through the night. You have collected all my tears and preserved them in your bottle! You have recorded every one of them in Your book.
You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in Your book!
