The loss of a child, the loss of a friend, the loss of a job will tragedy end? I can’t say I understand all the trials and pain, but my heart breaks for those treading through rocky terrain. It’s hard and it’s tiring will the trek ever end? It is hard to take another step and even bend. I hear people say when can I rest? I’ve given life my all, my very best. I wish I could say tomorrow the tide will turn and you will look back and see all you’ve learned. I don’t know when that time will come, but I encourage you to keep walking you are worthy not dumb. You may feel like the world is crumbling under your feet. Remember how much you’ve gone through, living life is quite a feat. I’ve experienced many trials and chosen to believe that there’s treasures that have been deposited in me. Life isn’t easy but I’ve learned much indeed. I pray that these words comfort others in need!
Voices are used to sing and shout. Voices are used to create and cast out doubt. Voices are instruments of praise and adoration. Voices are used to make declarations. How you use your voice is up to you. I want to change the world and speak life, too! There’s so many hurting. I hate when people die because of cancer and suicide. God I want to glorify you not disease, speak through my mouth and heal disease. May the church arise and miracles happen where people around the world get a taste of heaven. I pray we are united as one and honor the Father, Holy Spirit and Son!
Grieving is painful and hard! As I was able to process a little tonight, I decided to share what the Lord gave me. He gave me a poem and he gave me assurance: “It’s going to be ok.”
Grieving is hard and full of pain. Sometimes you can’t feel anything. Tears stream down your face and stain. Your heart is broken, the pain it stings. You can’t put your emotions into words. Your thoughts seem to be all over the place. You wonder what direction you’re moving towards. Then in the midst of chaos you find grace. The Lord touches you and gives you space. Space to process and space to grieve. Space to be held and cry with thee. He holds you tight a loving embrace. He looks at you with a smile on his face. Tragedy struck and trauma came. Along cake guilt, pain and shame. But child remember I love you the same. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. I am with in in joy and sorrow. Trust me, you are going to be ok. Though the storm is heavy and the sky is grey. Receive my love, each and every day. You don’t have to strive or try to prove. You just have to rest and simply be you. Let love overflow and heal your soul. Especially when you feel like life’s taking a toll. I suffered great losses this past week. But my God journeys with me through the hills and the peaks. I’m not alone and I’m not afraid. God is my refuge every day! He will help me through the journey of today!
Praying for you as you go through life and process hard things!
I see a bolt of lightning bursting forth
I hear God speak to each of you worth
Just as God knows every grain of sand
He knows you when no one understands
He’s the God of hope and salvation
He’s the source of life for every nation
He never authors condemnation
He’s a loving God and very patient
When you don’t know what to do, he’s always near. Give him all your worries and fears.
Call to him he’ll always hear
He always has a listening ear
He may not respond the way you desire but keep seeking him, he never grows tired
When it’s hard to rest and sleep at night
When during the day you’re tired of the fight
Ask him to give you insight
To illuminate your eyes with his sight
He loves you, let this truth sink in
Ask him to come, to dwell within
Ask him to show you how to forgive
It will liberate you, life it will give
You’re an overcomer, he wants you to live
Life abundant, always with him!
It’s been really hard lately. I decided to write. I hope it helps someone else.
My heart is heavy, I feel the weight
of all the years I’ve been in wait.
I thought I had patience but tested again.
I sit here wondering if and when.
I’m not trying to toil with questions unanswered
Many people are tormented with cancers
My burdens are heavy but light to the Lord
He never tires, he’s never bored
I come to him often with a heart that is torn
I ask him to mend it for I am worn
I don’t understand why pain won’t leave
I want to feel better, Lord I am grieved
I want to love, to serve and encourage
Right now Lord I am discouraged
I know I am loved, I know you are my hope
It’s just been hard to live and cope
You are my provider, my help in trouble
You pursue and continue to remove all the rubble
Lord I’m doing my best, I know you see
Thank you for choosing to love me
Help me to rest, be my strength day and night
Lord I will stand, but I need you to fight
You defeated the grave, the enemy won’t win
Jesus your blood was shed for our sins
Lord I pray for freedom and to actually feel
Like my heart, mind and body are actually healed.
