    Ana d..it is sometimes hard to love people, and if our standing in Heaven was decided by what we do, and think, we would all surely fail, the Kingdom of Heaven will be yours, not because of yourself, but because of Christ alone, ..let no man boast that he is able to earn Heaven, none are able. Believe in Him with your heart, and be saved. Jesus said many times "Do not be afraid".

    Ana d, no doubt every time someone reads your post they will say a prayer for you! We should all be as burdened as you are. In fact, your burden makes me think that you are going to be okay. Blessings my friend!
