  1. We Mary always have a friend who will never leave us or forsake us. His name is Jesus. Thank you for sharing the story you did. To do with your Friend. It touches my heart. It reminds me of old old song. That is appreciate for your Friend. Plus any one else with problems no matter what they are. God will bless you for being a Friend to your Friend at that time of night. When she rang you. You didn’t turn her away. Or say we can talk about this tomorrow. But you did what Jesus would do. Listened to her. Tried to help her as best you can. Even it was late at night. Your Friend will never forget that. Plus Jesus never truns us away when we come him with a problem. No matter what time of the night or day he is there for us. There to listen to us. Through his Holy Spirit give us the best advice to know what do. Or who to go for help. If we need it or for someone else. The song that is so good it reminds us of what friend Jesus is to in our time of need. It is “What a friend we have in Jesus” The words go What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and greifs to bear. What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. How amazing that is. That through a song like this we can know we have hope in Jesus no matter what we go through. We can be that hope to someone in need. Like you were to your friend. That song has helped me so many times. When need help. To Jesus is there for me no matter what. That I can also go him in prayer and scripture through his word to find things to help me. No matter what I go through. I have had ask God in the past to create in me a heart of hope. When a friend has needed me to be there for her. Over something she is struggling with. I can then in courage her. To know Jesus will help her get through what she is going through and see light at the end of the tunnel. I have been able to do that because God has created in me a heart of hope to the hurting like my friend. God bless in my prayers all incourage. Love Dawn xx

  2. In Courage,

    We have been through such grief, trauma & heartache over the last two years. Many people have lost loved ones due to Covid. Adding to that all the disunity of our country & shew we’ve been through a lot. We-the world-desperately needs hope. The kind of hope that only Jesus can give us. Everyone is so tired & needs God’s calming serenity into their souls. Sounds like a great study!

    Blessings 🙂

  3. Thank you for this beautifully written reminder. I needed to be reminded that through the storms God is our hope. There have been so many storms the last couple of years, and as a teacher, it has not been easy. I look forward to the Bible study.

  4. Thank you. Last morn I sat in the chapel of my Alma Mater, and felt God’s presence in this beautiful Chapel called the ‘Chapel of the Hope of the World.’
    “Hope” is something we could all do with more than ever before .
    My school motto “This is the victory even our faith ” reminded me of Whose I am.

    So thank you most of us need ‘Hope’ in the midst of the challenges we face.
