IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
A day of judgment is coming. Jesus first came to earth as a servant, but he will return as a conquering King. Encourage others to turn to me today. Tell them to stop waiting and invite them to follow me and be saved from my discipline. Pray that they humble themselves so I can extend my love and show my compassion. I want to shelter them from the coming storm.
Cast all your concerns on me, and stop trying to solve your problems. Stop brainstorming ways to overcome your challenging situation. Turn to me and experience my kindness and care. When overwhelmed with the world’s chaos or exhausted by the weight of poor decisions, look to me. Let me lift you and carry you. Jesus experienced all the trials of the world, so he knows what you are going through. Surrender to me, and let me refresh you and protect you.
You are not alone. God knows your pain and can sympathize with you. Talk to God about everything. Don’t hold anything back.
