"And he said unto me, My grace is
sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may
rest upon me."
The verses listed below will remind you
that the Lord is near and waiting to hear your cry out to Him.

"There hath no temptation taken you
but such that is common to man. But God is faithful who will not tempt you
