Most of all, don't ever let yourself believe the lie that prayer and Bible study are meaningless duties for a Christian. No! Jesus is real, and He's there. He speaks through His Word. He will give you grace in your struggles when you come to Him in prayer and Bible study. Whatever you do, read the Word. The Gospels and the Psalms are always good places to go to learn more about our loving God whom you can trust with your life.
Much love from someone who believes the best for you.
