Tough time
« on: September 06, 2012, 09:33:06 PM »
I don't feel comfortable saying exactly what it is on a public forum right now, but I'm having some serious trouble in my life right now. Please pray for me, and thank you.

I'm so sorry to hear this.

May the Lord have mercy upon you, ease your burden, grant you strength and make everything better!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.
