    At times I feel alone.I feel as if I need to turn my life around,make a change.I ask myself if I'm the person I should be or need to be.I need to put my feelings aside and let God have his way.I see that I can't change people,just continue to work on myself.Ask him to make me a better person.He brought me through so much.I owe him more than a thank you.I'm trying my best to be the Christian that he expects me to be.I had to make a big change in my life.With my husband,it's been a struggle.I've ask for a change in him.My children and grandchildren for a change,some I'm still praying for.He said he would never leave me nor forsake me.

    To be overwhelmed is to have a thing come against you that will try to bring you down and that is more than you can handle . I have a strong and solid rock called Jesus Christ His word to go to and find help and shelter and comfort I Praise God that when that occurs in my life , I have His word to hide under. When I find in His word what to do about that thing , I will take hold of it and act on it and overcome !!!!
