    Money

    Oh No

    3 years + fighting this disease has drained me. So broke now I cant even pay attention. Yet I continue to find a way to survive and have many things to be grateful for. So many times when I felt despair or financial hardship the grace of God and my love for Jesus manifested it self in ways that can only be explained as divine intervention each and every time!. Isaiah 41:13 For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4New Living Translation (NLT) All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4New Living Translation (NLT)
