Sometimes it is a chore just to lift your head and trudge through the day and you wonder if there is any meaning to be had.

His Mercies are NEW every Morning.
Great is His Faithfulness.

Whom have I in heaven but YOU?
There is nothing I desire besides YOU

My heart and my flesh my fail but God is the Strength of my Heart and my Portion forever.

Even at the end of your rope when your grip is fading God is holding on – He is there like a strong tower to run into and be saved.

Don’t let despair overcome – rest in the one who has overcome death itself – cast your cares on Him – He Cares For You.
