I hold her close. She cries. I feel her tears. She’s been rejected, broken, and neglected. Her life hurts. She has not received unfailing love.
I am overwhelmed, tired, exausted and I feel discouraged. At times I wonder if I even matter; does anyone care? Am I thought about? I feel emotionally drained. Life feels like a mountain that may be unattainable. How will I ever make it through? When thou passest through the the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Isaiah 43:2
Oh God! Do you see the tears, the pain, and all the hard? There’s pain in hearts, homes, and my soul. How can I continue on? I’m weak, and this is so hard. The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalms 9:9
I cry to God. He hears and sees the pain. He gives unconditional love and encouragement in the midst of this turmoil. Is my heart open? I ask to receive strength, and He empowers me to continue on. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7
I open my eyes to receive His gifts. They come to me in such noticeable ways when my heart and eyes are looking and receiving. For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Psalms 107:9
She’s alone. She has had no one to go to in those times of heart ache. Everyone has let her down. She can’t trust. No one has been faithful to her needs. Then they come. They want her for their child. They want to walk with her through life. They want to call her by the name they have chosen. To hold her hand and guide her as she walks through her loss. But can she trust? Will she open her heart to their love? Will she allow them to guide her and hold her hand?
” God, I give you my pain, daily hurts and grief. I am not able to walk this alone. You are my True Strength, my Redeemer, and Comforter. Thank you for coming to me no matter my state and condition. I want to praise you no matter what you are allowing me to go through. I am giving you my hand; please take and guide me.” The battle is not yours but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20: 15b
– If this is you now, I want to encourage you. You are not alone in your journey. I have felt these feelings, and know what pain and heartache is. Please don’t give up. You can win this with Jesus. Also find someone whom you trust, and talk with them about what is in your heart.
– If you are able, please reach out to the hurting now. They are all around; ask God to open your eyes to their need. Be their gift from God today. We are all broken and need renewed by Him, and refreshed by a friend who truly cares. The power of knowing someone is thinking and praying for you is irreplaceable.
