When it all slips away When I am left alone The darkness surrounds me I feel like hiding
When it all gets too heavy When life is hard to bear The world is too much for me I remember I’m not alone
My Savior is with me He knows my pain My God does not forsake me No matter how hard life gets
God loves me and heals me He helps me when I’m weak God is always near me I don’t need to be afraid • Bethany Acker
• Even when we feel alone and overwhelmed, God is always there. He will never forsake us in our pain. He is always eager to help us. Can you think of a time you were comforted by God’s presence with you? Consider taking a moment to thank God for this. If nothing comes to mind, you can ask Him for this anytime. He loves to answer these prayers.
• Jesus invites us to tell Him about all the things that are weighing on us. He sits beside us in our pain and weeps with us. Consider taking a moment to bring Him any burdens that come to mind.
• In addition to talking to Jesus, who are trusted Christians in your life you can talk to, people who will listen to you and help shoulder your heavy burdens and bring them to Jesus? (Galatians 6:2) If no one comes to mind, you can ask God to help you identify someone in the future.
The Lord is near the brokenhearted; he saves those crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 (CSB)
