In my distress, I called out to the Lord–he set me free. Have you ever felt that before? What does it feel like when he sets you free? Do you get a word? Do you feel a boost of sudden inspiration? Do you hear a voice that says, ‘get up?’ Get back to work? I have felt and heard all those things. The Lord will guide you if you ask him to. His power is incomprehensible and will help you conquer anything. He’s a moving force. He’s not stagnant. He’s more than a listening ear. He is not a do-nothing being. ‘I called out to the Lord, and he set me free.’ He took action. In my distress, he was near. An ever-present help in time of need. The greatest of friends, indeed. I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me. He heard my woes. He comforted me. He brought me great help. I got up again. I kept moving. I completed my tasks. He told me I am well. He gave me visions. There is nothing the Lord can’t do. In a universe made up of trillions of galaxies, I called out to the Lord. And he heard me! He heeded to my voice. He gave me solace. He protected me. He told me not to worry. I met the day, the week, the year. I cried out to my God, the creator of the multiverses—and he heard little old me!✨🌠🌌🪐🌏☄️⚛️💫💜⭐️
