A simplistic, quick answer would be God.
He will soothe your pain. He will be there for you when you are discouraged. He will cry with you when you lose a loved one. He shows you that failure is a door opening for something else.
Most of all, He will forgive your sins.
What do we say to God to get His help?
Pray for personal guidence. Ask for His love to see you through your storms. Pray for personal protection.
The sin part is a little harder. We know when we have wronged. We know we have failed God.
This begs the question…Am I too much of a sinner to be forgiven by God? We are tempted everyday to sin. Satan loves to cause havoc in our lives. He is tempting you 24/7.
There is a beautiful verse in I Corinthians 10:13. that gives you peace and comfort.
” No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide a way of escape so that you will endure it.”
So soothing for me, and I hope it is for you as well.
We know God will always forgive us if we ask Him.
Here is an assignment for you to think about:
How do I Make God’s thoughts my thoughts?
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
