God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
It is altogether fitting that the text shifts from warning against falling away, to the piercing power of the Word of God, to our Great Hight Priest Jesus, for our author has been warning and encouraging his readers to hang on to their faith through a time of great trial lest they should perish. Think about it: They were being told to endure…

You + me
In my yard
Carved on a tree
Is the words
You + me
I wrote it in the summer
I was by myself
You went near
I went back to that tree with the words of you + me
It was still there
Hiding in sight
I wish you were here
With all my might
I’m sitting here, reading a book, and I’m eating a tiny turkey sandwich. My cat is sitting next to me. And I give her a tiny piece of turkey. I set it in front of her and all she does is smells it. She looks up at me. I pick up the turkey having her smell it some more, maybe she’ll eventually eat it. I ask her, “Do you want it? Hmmm?” She just stares at me. (Oh yeah, I’m talking to a cat.)
I pick up my sandwich and I show her that I have turkey too and I take a bite. “See, Zeva, I have turkey too.” She closes her eyes and off to sleep she goes.
Wow. I’m humiliated… Haha
Those of you who suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts you need to be strong. I’ve encountered a time of depression and suicidal thoughts but I believe at one point everybody does.
I just want all of you to know that you have a purpose and a reason here on earth. So don’t waste your life on foolish thoughts and actions!
Thinking these thoughts and actions are foolish and dangerous. I’ve had many, many family members that have almost killed themselves just because they hate theirselves.
I just wanted to tell anybody that reads this to let anybody you know that has depression to cheer them up and encourage them! Be strong!
It was on February 2. And I was with my mom and my brother Brandon. (It was Brandon’s birthday.) We were on our way home from church. It was snowing and mushy and sleet was falling from the sky.
So on the way home we were going down a steep hill. (because no matter how I get home, we will have to go down a steep hill.)
We were on our way when we got stuck going home. We were slipping and sliding going down the hill. There are sharp curves and lots of trees.
Mom had to back up from the hill or else we probably would of crashed. Then we went into a driveway. We parked our car and got out. We were going to ask the people inside the house if we could leave our car there and have my dad and other brother, Kyle, to pick us up in his truck.
A lady opened up the front door she was super duper nice. She made me, my mom and Brandon some hot chocolate to drink. I was freezing. Only having on my sparkly slippers, a skirt, jacket and a shirt. I am so thankful for sweet, wonderful people. She was so nice and helped us out in a time of need. She also had a daughter that was named Chelsey. “Pay it forward”, she said. 🙂 So I shall!
These sound delicious. 🙂 I’m vegetarian but vegan still works for me. 🙂
They’re deliciously chocolatey, easy-to-make, have a lovely crackle-topped texture plus a warming hint of spice… and they’re vegan! How many boxes can a cookie tick?
