|“The Son of God
perfectly knows and understands, for He felt and bore our burdens before
we ever did. And because He paid the ultimate price and bore that
burden, He has perfect empathy and can extend to us His arm of mercy in
so many phases of our life. He can reach out, touch, succor—literally
run to us—and strengthen us to be more than we could ever be and help us
to do that which we could never do through relying upon only our own

will come again for the sea and not the snow.
Thank you, Jimmy!
