A Word from the Lord

Tons of things are going on in my life right now. Most of it is good; I have food to eat, clothes to wear, clean water to drink, and my family is healthy and well. But there are several stressful things going on (I won't elaborate) and sometimes it all feels overwhelming. Monday morning I picked up my Bible, and it fell open to this:
I called on Your name, O Lord, from the depths of the pit.
You heard my plea: "Do not close Your ears to my cry for relief."
You came near when I called You,
and You said,
"Do not fear."
~ Lamentations 3:35 - 37
Just what I needed to hear.
