But the Lord Stood with me and Gave me Strength… 2 Timothy 4:17
The Lord helps you in your weakness and gives you strength to face situations, people and things from becoming more powerful than you can handle. He says, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
When you can’t face something with your physical or mental strength, you can when you reach for Jesus hand through you friends and family standing in the gap for you. When God is by your side (through your family) you’re not alone!

It’s a natural tendency for us to make comparisons, but when we don’t know how to make proper comparisons we run the risk of negatively affecting ourselves. Seek answers from many sources, including the bible, before you anchor on the wrong decision about yourself.
