Day 29: Hope Is Here

I didn't know it was going to happen,

but GOD had to know

because it was orchestrated by HIM

and it was for HIM.

The man stood in my kitchen

after moving furniture back into our home.

As I handed him a tip

he teared up

and was beyond grateful


life has been tough for him

as his 48 year mother just passed away.

My heart cried for him and with him

and before you knew it

I handed him my gumby JESUS

who stands on my counter.

My mouth started moving

with words coming out

all about the HOPE of JESUS

as I shared my testimony

and how I am clinging to JESUS

with my all.

In my own sadness

GOD had me share JESUS

to Corey

who was broken and hurting

and had no where to turn.

Oh GOD never wastes our pain.

Oh GOD shows up at the perfect time.

Oh the WEIGHT of his pain was so great.

as it should be.

Oh the WEIGHT of his pain

that left him hopeless.

Oh the WEIGHT of his loss was ever so great

because he lost the one whom he loved so great.

The WEIGHT of pain

that is way too heavy to carry ourselves.

And there in my kitchen

HOPE filled the room


me, Corey and gumby JESUS


GOD had set up an appointment

for that very minute


to me,

but oh how GOD was ready

to be the main guest in the room.

I don't remember all I said

because the words that flowed from my heart

where from my

GOD who

planned this


I do remember telling

Corey that I will be praying for him

and for him to cry out to JESUS

everything he is feeling


how he can be ever so real to JESUS


JESUS is ever so REAL.

Has the WEIGHT of pain left you hopeless?

Have you cried out to JESUS

who takes the WEIGHT of pain

and wears it like a robe

claiming it for HIMSELF

so we don't have to carry it


That is my JESUS & your JESUS



who never tires carrying my stuff


your stuff


everyone else who cries out to HIM.

Release the WEIGHT of pain to


because you were never created to carry it yourself.

Also, do you have a someone

who you can share your heart with, as

we weren't created to be alone.

"So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out.

Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going.

HE always keeps HIS word.

Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out,

not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on,

especially as we see the big Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:23-24 The Message)
