In the hard times of life, the presence, the word, and the encouragement of just one friend can make all the difference. We only need one to come alongside us and give us hope. Where do you turn when you don’t have the one?
Do you ever wonder what Jesus would say about anxiety, fear and worry? Or, how he addressed them? His answer was simple with three little words. It is finished. He gave us the tools we need to overcome.
The lies we believe can have a profound impact on how we feel about ourselves. The enemy uses what makes us feel different and insecure to feed us a bunch of lies about our worth, our value and our identity. But, an encounter with Jesus can change all that and help you understand the truth. God’s grace and mercy can bring us to a right view of ourselves.

Will you be mine? That’s not only a question we might ask another this time of year for Valentine’s Day, but I believe is also the fundamental question Jesus asks each of us. Do you love a good “love story?” I think Jesus had to go through Samaria in order to show one woman just how much He loved her.
