To My Family:
God will not ask anything of you that He will not be there to help you through, so don’t ever quit. We all have options, however, God is the only way to go. Don’t wait until the last minute to choose Him or to say you’re sorry. Try to change your ways to be a better way. I am sorry for all that I have done to hurt you. I am now trying to live the best Christian life that I can. I believe I am covered by God’s grace. I’m not saying that I’m not scared, but I trust in Jesus and you should too.
Love, Evelyn
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand". Isaiah 41:10
