”Not because I am worthy.
Not because I have gotten it all right.
His grace have kept me thus far.”
Losing her son was a pain that pushed open unexpected doors.
Although, she misses her baby. She could go on and on about him.
She has seen the healing power of God even when it looked unsurvivable.
Words are not enough to describe how deep the pain of loss cuts deep.
You may not fully understand the mystery behind losing someone you love whether it’s a father, or mother, or sibling, or friend or spouse or child etc.
Sometimes the wounds remain fresh and the pain recurring.
Bible Reading: John 11: 1- 42
This reminds us of Mary and Martha who had lost their brother, Lazarus. They wept. Their hearts were sore. The community poured out their love (John 11:19). When Jesus finally came, he saw the mourning. He too wept alongside the sisters (John 11:35).
When I get here, I pause and think.
If Jesus did feel pain while here on earth, why do we sometimes think he doesn’t understand our situation?
Jesus is moved when we are too.
He sees our pain and he feels it alongside with us.
May be your heart aches and your tears runs like a river.
May be the wounds are fresh and refuse to heal.
Just may be you ask if Jesus is still there.
I am glad to tell you He is there.
Through every circumstance pale or bright, winter or summer, windy or stormy.
God is there with us, His children
Jesus loves you.
Jesus sees you and He knows you.
Jesus still calms the troubled sea including our hearts.
Jesus still speaks to the storm even our lives.
Prayer: Lord take my heart, speak peace to my soul Lord. Let your gentle breeze flood over my soul in Jesus name. Dear Father, pour your healing balm into this hole in my heart. Grant me grace to overcome and help me to walk in the joyful path in Jesus Amen.
