Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction are the hardest to make. Tip toe if you must but take the step of faith. And remember when some one treats you badly there is something wrong with them, not you.
Prayer for the week
Come Holy Spirit, and fill my heart with your gifts. Help me in all my needs and grant me the knowledge to do what is right. Advise me in my doubts and strengthen me in my weakness. Amen
