Hope In Time Of Need
Back in 2003, I was living every day what seemed as care free as anyone, everything seemed fine, getting up, working, making a living (comfortable), feeling fine, then I got sick (heart problem), and all of a sudden, I am faced with being unable to earn a living, I had no insurance to take care of my health issue and one day outside an office waiting for my appointment time I opened my bible and reading out of the book of Psalms, these following verses spoke to me, that the LORD would give me Hope In Time Of Need. I pray they will give you that message also, no matter what you may be going through, God Bless!
