You're not alone

I've been struggling a little trying to figure out normal life stuff. While I've been going through this, I've found how easy it is to want to run away and not deal with it. Yes, it's very cowardly. And, no I haven't been running away. I'm just stating if I wanted to, it would be an easy option.

My dad is big into sci-fi movies, and he'll sometimes quote the cliche lines in those movies, "You're not aloneeee." Even though that line usually refers to aliens, it's a true statement. We're not alone. We when go through difficult times and situations, Jesus is right by our sides. We may not notice because we're too focused on our situation, but trust me, He's there...Just ask for His help.

Frederick Douglass quote

A good friend of mine sent me this quote by Frederick Douglass yesterday:

Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. -- Frederick Douglass
