“When seeking for answers at the height of my illness I discovered a wealth of help online but almost nothing of a spiritual nature. That was when the idea for 2hearts was born and since then God has graciously given me a large “heart” family from all over the world.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-7
All praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the source of every mercy and the God who comforts us.
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
You can be sure that the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. So when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your benefit and salvation!
For when God comforts us, it is so that we, in turn, can be an encouragement to you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in suffering, you will also share God’s comfort.
I would encourage you to browse. You will find the most wonderful news for all who suffer. God has something to say to us all. May you be encouraged and blessed today.
