But God I am Yours


I don't want to be a

Debbie Downer,

BUT

my heart is quite heavy.

All around me

& 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

& 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

& that makes me feel hopeless

because there is nothing that I can do

to take away the pain and sorrow.

When I say

BUT

" 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.

BUT GOD 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 DID

send

HIS SON

who felt

more pain and sorrow

than 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

&

that makes me feel

less hopeless.

Therefore~

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,

& 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

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).

There are NO BUTS about it

because

GOD DID SAY

You are HIS!
