A new day has dawned, and morning has broken into another month. What lies ahead, we know not- yet it all depends how we see the day. It all depends if we prefer to see the thorns or the flowers along the way…
I am writing this for you- yes YOU, who feels like there is no more reason to face another day, who have lost all sense of hope for living. Look at the horizon and see the rainbow calling you to enjoy each of the beautiful shades of color , enticing you to bath in the glow of what life has to offer. Life has its ups and downs, but life must go on….
This is for you, my friend, who feels like there are no more tears to shed, for you have cried day and night. Listen to the soothing sound of the raindrops, for even in the rain, you can sing a song, a new song of praises to God who made every little drops of dew, who made every flowers grow and painted the skies blue .
This is for you, my child, who is searching for your mother’s touch, who is now gone with the angels, whose father has abandoned you with nothing but false hopes and shame. Hold on and cling to the hands of your Father God, who will never forsake you nor leave you.
This is for you who is facing physical and emotional anguish from someone who thought you can trust. God sees your pain and will never let you be put down again. Jesus understands, for He he'd been there. Continue to love, for someday, God will wipe every tears from your eyes. He is the God of Justice and He will never let His own children fall.
This is for you, who love too much, who have given all you’ve got to the one you love, yet felt betrayed, insulted, and left with nothing but feelings of hatred and guilt and doubts. Be still and let God be God. Let God handle everything. Let Him release you of all the bitterness. Cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you. He will never fail you. Remember, YOU are valuable to Him, and He loves you so much that He died at the cross for you.
This is for you, who feels so alone and lonely- who feels like the world has forgotten that you ever exist, who is hungry for food for your body and spirit – who is hungry for love. Somewhere along the way, you will meet an angel who will supply all your needs. Just open your eyes and listen intently to the voice inside you- stop, look and listen intently to the Shepherd’s voice and follow His lead- hold His hand and tighten His grip. He will lead you to the River of Life , and you will never be thirsty again. He is the Bread of Life and you will never be hungry again. He is Your Friend forever and you will never be alone again.
"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know You fully well." Psalm 139:14
Gloria, this is so sweet. I know I've told you before but your words are so poetic. Your soul is so pure and I know God is pleased with your offering. You are an encouragement to me, and to everyone around you, sweet lady.
