Do You Need to be Encouraged?

Do You Need to be Encouraged?

Lately I have been stressed and worried. I have been fighting to maintain peace within because of all the “what ifs” that are running through my head. I have been wanting encouragement, even praying that God will provide someone into my day that will offer the encouragement that I need and that He would just give me a message. Well, it didn’t really seem like anyone came along, but I did some reading in my Bible and was reminded of…
