Description

In this world, we are going to have problems and at times, trouble.  Jesus told us that we would have trials and tribulations but to take comfort in knowing that He would be there to see us through each and every one of them.  Being saved allows us to take comfort in knowing that Jesus has our back - that Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us, no matter what we are going through.  Human nature has us often taking our eyes off of God and putting our eyes on our problems and what we perceive as the size of our problems.  But as Pastor Dinkins reminds us, there is NO problem TOO hard for the Lord.  Jesus promised to never leave us comfortless.  Thank God that we have a Comforter who can give us a peace that passeth all understanding during our storms.  Let us remember and hold steadfast to Jesus' promises.

A popular gospel song that is playing right now is called HELP and it helps to reiterate the need for us to cry out to God when we need help:

HELP (by Erica Campbell):

I been in the fire so long
I can't get burned no mo'
I thought you was puttin' out the flame
But it was rain from the storm
Thoughts all in my head
Makin' me stressed
All day long
They won't let me rest
"S" on my chest
I ain't that strong

I need a life line right now
911 won't do
My back's against the wall now
I've done all that I can do
I prayed every prayer
Went to every service
Like I know how
Just a ship without a sail
I'm lost without your help

I need help
Oh Lord I need your help
Whoa ooh Lord

Said I do but to tell the truth
Sometimes I don't
But it ain't about my will
It's all about what you want
Your family used to be first
Things getting worse
In my home
My brother is hurt
We need a word
It's too far gone

I need a life line right now
911 won't do
My back's against the wall now
Done all that I could do
I prayed every prayer
Went to every service
Like I know how
Just a ship without a sail
I'm lost without your help

Lord it's me this time
Said I'm cryin' all day
I just can't make it if I don't have your (help)
Whoa said I really need

Said you'd never leave me
So come on Jesus
Lord yeah
Lord yeah
Does anybody need the Lord?
I can't make it without you Lord, oh,
Somebody laying in the hospital now
Need you to make it alright
God I just lost my daddy,
I need
Yes I need
Oh, yes I need
Yeah, yeah, yeah
