Dear Friends,

Are you struggling with a problem - maybe even a problem no one knows about? Do you have darkness in your past that haunts you? Is your marriage less than perfect? Have your children disappointed you? Your parents let you down?

Life is such a struggle. I used to think that Jesus would fix everything that was wrong in my life - and He did, really, on the cross and by His Resurrection. But while His death and Resurrection overcame the power of sin and death for us in all eternity, there are still scars that we bear in this life from our past sins or even from the way that others have sinned against us.

You are not alone. Satan wants you to think that you are and in your despair to pull even more inward. Look to Jesus. He is there and willing to help, even when He seems far away. Be brave and share your story with a Christian friend that you trust. They just may encourage you in ways that make the next day easier to bear. And then ~you~ listen the next time a friend needs to tell their story.

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2
