Have you ever realized that one’s personal circumstances might be far off worse than yours? 15 years ago, I found this out quickly by praying for others on the Guideposts Prayer Line. Thousands of callers every day were reaching out for God’s hope and help.
But how can we help them when we ourselves are struggling? The answer is ASAP – Always Say A Prayer. It’s free and God is ready, willing, and able to listen and answer the call.
An excellent Bible scripture to remind yourself and others that God provides is Matthew 6:26-27 – 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Instead of worrying, trust God to provide for your needs. Remind yourself that whatever you’re going through is not nearly as tough as others. Know that I am praying for God’s favor upon you and your needs.
