May your faith be strengthened and encouraged today as you worship Jesus and communicate with Him today what is on your heart.  We serve a God who lived among us as a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isa. 53:3).  Ask Him for what you need today.
