Let's face it, life has days where it's an all out struggle to get through. Maybe you have walked through days, even weeks on ending where you don't know how to draw on God's strength, yet God can and does sustain us, even when we might not ask. If we will look to Him, cast our thoughts, emotions, concerns and all that is pressing us, we know according to God's word, that He is present, willing and wanting to help us in all areas of our life.
May these Scriptures and prayers bring you renewed hope and encouragement that God will help refresh you and bring you through your tired and weary place you or a loved one is facing.
