COME TO ME when you are hurting, and I will soothe your pain.
Come to Me when you are joyful, and I will share your Joy, multiplying it many times over.
I am All you need, just when you need it.
Your deepest desires find fulfillment in Me alone.
This is the age of self-help.
Bookstores abound with books about "taking care of number one,"making oneself the center of all things.
The main goal of these methodologies is to become self-sufficient and confident.
You, however, have been called to take a "road less traveled": continual dependence on Me.
True confidence comes from knowing you are complete in My Presence.
Everything you need has its counterpart in Me.
-- From "Jesus Today" by Sarah Young
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
—JOHN 15: 5
"Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
—JAMES 1: 4
