Whether you are burdened, or burdened to help, you have a special place in God’s heart. Ask God to open your eyes in satisfying the needs around you and he will shine his favor upon you!


When you’re facing a wall, fix your eyes upon Jesus and he will rescue you. Instead of looking at your problems, gaze at the Lord.
