Pain is real~whether it is in your body or in your heart.
Pain is real.
I just read an email from a very special woman in my life
who is a pillar of strength
because GOD is her pillar.
She faces her pain with GOD and isn't afraid to admit it.
With tears in my eyes I massage her heart with prayers
for all that she has been through.
Pain is real
whether it is in your body or in your heart.
And I think what if
never wore the pain on the cross
for you and for me~
how could we ever move forward beyond our pain?
Think about it. Really think about it.
When JESUS wasn't a thought in my head
I drowned my pain in other things
that just pushed it deeper into my heart~
JESUS became my reality~
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon ME, Because HE has anointed ME. To preach the gospel to the poor; HE has sent ME to heal the brokenhearted..." (Luke 4:18) And all HE asks is for us to~
“Come to ME, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28)
Just come and JESUS takes the pain
so that we can continue to press forward beyond it~
"Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid].
Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self
is being [progressively] renewed day by day.
For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for
us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond
all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]!
So we look not at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are
temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable." (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
So thank you sweet sweet woman~
thank you for showing me
by the way that you lean on HIM
for your everything through the pain.
Because you live the truth
JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~
HE IS OUR SAVIOR.
