With all my heart I believe that my trials can be overcome with faith in Jesus Christ by relying on divine power and grace. The Lord wants to help me overcome (be free from) the hard things I face in life and so I let him help me.
I pour my heart out to the Lord in prayer and feel his presence there. I say, “Please help me” and in his mercy he does. (Many times he’s helped me and so I know this is true.)
The Lord is my forever friend and I love him with all of my heart. (I get choked up when writing about him because of all the times he’s helped me.) I think of the 23rd Psalm and what each sentence personally means to me.
The 23rd Psalm
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
As I’ve prayed in faith the Lord has comforted me, eased my pains, taken my heavy burdens and given me peace. He hasn’t removed my burdens from me but somehow has made them easier to bear.
I believe the miracles of Jesus are in the scriptures to show me that when I pray or reach out to the Lord he helps me overcome my trials. “Lord, take this burden from me, it’s too bitter to bear” I pray, and in compassion and through divine grace he heals my heart in a way that is personal.
“If I just reach out to him and stretch with all my might in diligence I know he’ll heal me” I think to myself and the Lord feels me reach out. “Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you” he beckons and because of my prayer he draws near and helps me and says, “Thy faith hath made thee whole. Go in peace.”
