Your heart is broken, torn and bleeding and you wonder if you could ever possibly heal? The loss/heartache you just experienced has your mind reeling with questions and you want answers. Perhaps this particular season of life is extremely hard, the storm is real and you hardly have the strength to keep your head up.
We have all experienced pain, pain so deep that it threatened to steal everything within us, even our joy. Loss, loss so great that it seemed that our hearts would never heal. Trials, trials so hard that we were shaken to the very core, perhaps there may even be a little seed of doubt being planted in mind, whether God really cares about what we are going through.
Dear ones I know the pain is real, the wound is deep, and the storms harsh, but may I encourage you with the words from Deuteronomy 31:8:
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
I can not possibly fathom the pain of loss and suffering you may feel at this very moment, but my heart aches with you. I pray that Abba Father would hold you close and begin to heal what was broken and that on this journey God would reveal to you greater things of Him.
God is Father of redemption, He Restores, He Heals, He Redeems and that my friends is quite a wonderful, encouraging thought during this difficult season you may find yourself in. And when He brings restoration, Healing, and Redemption He does it such a way that is beyond our comprehension.
He brings forth Beauty from the Ashes and paints a beautiful picture on the Canvas of Life. He takes the broken pieces and forms them into a beautiful journey, that is a testimony of His Mighty Hand, to bring Him Glory.
So wherever you find yourself as you read this, be encouraged dear one, that altho it hurts, there are millions of questions, and the pain is real. Abba Father does care and He loves you beyond what you can possibly imagine. And He will:
“Console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord , that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3
Because of Him,
