Some people find it hard to believe God will actually help them, and the weight of the world on their shoulders is crushing. They think He doesn’t care, or He’s too busy being CEO of the entire universe to be concerned about their unhappy life. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, God loves you. And he likes you. Despite your feelings of insecurity, inadequacy or other emotion you’re ashamed of, God is all about loving you.
Give yourself permission to believe that what you hope for is actually true. You are not alone; He is with you always. Making life happen, hard and messy as it is, is not all up to you; help is available. And it’s a prayer away.
