Throughout our lives, we are faced with great memories and experiences and then there are those times that have the potential to paralyze us to where we cannot function well potentially emotionally and ultimately physically if we don't get help from our loving, heavenly Father who wants us to walk in the freedom He has destined for us to have. Even in the midst of the most difficult of circumstances, God does not change; He's consistent, loving, forgiving, merciful, and gracious to help us overcome whatever life deals us. God made a way through the work of Jesus Christ to exchange our pain, our lack, our inabilities for His work on the cross and resurrection to give us new life and more abundant. May these Scriptures bring life to you as you speak them over your circumstances and may you recognize He wants to exchange your sorrow for His joy and His complete healing in your life in spirit, soul and body.
