The first game is slated for Friday, November 17th at 7:00 PM; the second contest is on Saturday, November 18th at 2:00 PM.   Jacob Thompson is a 9-year-old from Maine diagnosed with Stage 4 High-Risk Neuroblastoma.  The doctors aren’t sure  Jacob will make it to Christmas, so for his last wish, Jacob requested to have Christmas Cards sent to him from all around the country. William Penn University would like to invite anyone planning to attend the games this weekend, to bring along a card for Jacob – information on where to mail the cards will be available at the games.

What to do with a Troubled Heart
Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17

There is no greater answer for our troubles than to have a conversation with our Lord. Not a one-sided conversation but truly enter a time of listening. Often, we want to share our anguish but how regularly do we want to hear feedback. This prayer takes more than sharing our troubles for it takes waiting in His presence and receiving instruction.

We all have a trusted friend we share the troubles of our heart with but what if we looked towards God as a trusted friend and confidant. He is ready to hear from us and will help us as our friend with the problems we carry.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

He calls us his friends and His desire is to sit with us in our troubles and anguish. His friendship is motivated by love for us for His very essence is love for us. When He approaches our problems, he hears them through love, so I’m not sure why we wait to carry all our difficulties to our friend.
