God is good, a hiding place in tough times. He recognizes and welcomes anyone looking for help, No matter how desperate the trouble. Nahum 1:7 MSG
Thoughts for Today
Do you sometimes feel as though nobody understands what you are experiencing?
Good news! Someone does understand. The Bible tells us that God is compassionate. He has a sympathetic understanding of what you are going through and he wants to ease your burden and free you from the load you carry. He is dependable. He is always there for you. He will never leave you alone. God's love has no limit or conditions and never fails, no matter what your circumstances.
You have many challenges to face, but you don't have to face them alone. Talk to God about your feelings and your fears. As you spend time in the Bible, you will be comforted. You will learn that God is your refuge in your trouble. He offers strength and help He is ever-present. He cares for you. He wants to carry your anxiety. He will give you peace.
Lord, thank you for your promise to be with me, no matter what. Thank you for understanding and caring. In Jesus' name ...

Concerned Persons by Dr. Jimmy Ray Lee is designed for the many people who have a current or past relationship with a person who has a life-controlling problem. It is suggested for home groups, support groups, recovery groups or cell groups. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
