Do you ever feel like the man in this photo? I sure do. I woke up to this song running through my head. As we walk, there so many times when we cannot see where we’re going, or what’s ahead.

I’m alive, even though a part of me has died. I know I’m not the only one who has had heartache. But what do we do? Where do we go? We each have to decide. As we walk this road, I hope and pray we all make the right choice as struggle through the hard times. Hope comes when the hurt and the Healer collide. Have you made your appointment?

He’s waiting. He cares. Talk to the One Who knows you best, and will take care of you – the Lord God, Jehovah.
