“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!”—John 15:111

Fear not when the problems and challenges you face appear too big. While these may be too large for your strength and wisdom, remember that with Me all things are possible!

I will give you joy in place of sorrow, if you will ask. I have promised to give wisdom to anyone that asks, and to give it liberally and without reproach.2 Ask, therefore, and trust that I will not fail to provide.

I am the Good Shepherd who shows kindness, patience, compassion, and mercy. I have protected you and kept you these many years, even when you stumbled and fell. I have overlooked your faults, failures, and shortcomings, and picked you up and shown you the way forward.

Give, and it will be given unto you! Give of yourself and of your time, trusting that everything that you spend in love for others, I will repay.3 Even when you feel incapable and like you have no more to give, trust that you will receive My grace in good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.4
