A Thought: Experiencing Love in the Midst of Strife.
Car accidents, terrorism, accidental explosions, illness, loss of work, death of loved ones. These things are a part of everyday life it seems, but when it happens to YOU in the holiday season, it’s excruciating to endure when everyone around you is merry and bright! While you don’t resent their happiness, you find yourself quietly suffering.
How do you experience Love in the Midst of hurt? I have found that just taking some quiet time away from everyone and everything to be alone with our God is like a healing balm. The Lord gave us Jesus, knowing His Son would endure suffering, because God Loves us enough to want us to be together forever. So, the Lord above all, understands what it feels like to experience pain in the midst of deep Love. If you find yourself feeling sadness when merriment is all around you, you are not alone. Allow the Great Healer to minister to you. God is ready to wrap His arms around you in prayer and peace. Seek the Lord today.
Lamentations 3:22 “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.”
