Jas 1:1-11
Ps 119:67, 68, 71, 72, 75, 76
Mk 8:11-13

Many times in our lives we turn to God when we are in need of something.  Maybe we need guidance in making an important decision or we are looking for comfort in times of pain.  God will always be there to answer us as long as we ask in the proper way.  Do not let doubt guide your conversation with God.  If you believe that he will not answer or you wish to challenge his love, he will not respond.  But if you instead ask with an open mind and love from your heart, God will always answer your prayers and guide you on your way.

Often in our lives we can feel as though God is burdening us with too much.  We may feel overwhelmed or hampered by the load he has put on our back; a load we don't feel we deserve.  We may even feel as though God is punishing us for something and his love for us as dwindled. This is not true.  As I grew up, anytime I began to feel like this my mother would always tell me, “God puts the biggest burdens on those whom he believes can handle it the most.”  I took this completely to heart and used it to motivate myself to overcome any obstacle I faced.  Let us all us this to motivate ourselves today.  It is never too late to rise up and overcome the burdens in our lives; to let our story be one of success.

God Bless.
