Day 30: But God...


I don't want to be a

Debbie Downer,

but my heart is quite heavy.

All around me

and probably all around you

are people~

people who you love

people who know the people that you love

that are going through a tough time

and you may be one of those people.

Whether it is

Surgery

or a

Health Issue

or

Cancer

or

Hospice

or

Loneliness

or a

Death

or

____________~

It is all around us

and that makes me feel hopeless

because there is nothing that I can do

to take away the pain and sorrow.

When I say

"I will pray"

I feel so lame at times

because that is all that I can do,

but really

that is the best thing that I can do & that you you can do

Prayer~

talking to

God

about everything~

every emotion

every hurt

every circumstance

every ___________.

A

two-way

conversation,

because

He is

all around us too!

He hears

He responds,

even if we don't hear or see

His answer. He reminds me,

in the midst of everything,

that He is

in the midst of everything

even when the "everything"

includes

pain & suffering~

"...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31

*****

"...but God is the strength of my heart

and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26

*****

"...But God will never forget the needy;

the hope of the afflicted will never perish. Psalm 9:18

*****

"...But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

But God~

giving up

His Son~

His Son

feeling more pain and sorrow

that anyone of us will ever feel

so that

He can feel it with us

so that

He can

Provide the comfort

so that

He can

Wipe our tears

so that

we don't have to

and

that makes me feel

less hopeless.

So

humbly I come

in prayer

for all of you & for your loved ones~

who are in pain and sorrow,

as many of you

have also come in prayer

for me,

and oh the power of prayer!

So

let's remember

"But God"

because

these are more than just words

because

He is

all that we need

because

He is

all that we need~

Because

Who am I

Who are you~

"... but God’s child; and since you are his child,

God has made you also an heir. Galatians 4:7

Forever His

Forever Yours

From Rags to Riches.


May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him,

so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
