Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Forgive my tardy response, brother. Your words mean more than I can say.

Every day, I remind myself of (at least) two verses:
...for without me ye can do nothing (John 15:5), and

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Phil. 4:13).

I believe those verses absolutely. I don't even think I can get out of bed in the morning without Jesus' help. In fact, about six months ago, I was struck with a debilitating (but mercifully brief) disorder that partially paralyzed me, thus proving the point! But with Christ .... well, you simply wouldn't believe the valleys through which He's borne me.

Thank you for your encouragement. Your prayers are reciprocated!
