TRYING ~ IT JUST HURTS
Sometimes we need a friend to remind us that everything is going to be alright. So I'm here to remind you that things will get better if you are in that spot of life. We often have reminders of a hurt spot and it just hurts.
I was talking with a friend last night who is having a hard time of life. She is blaming herself for something she did not do or had any part of in a certain situation. God knows that we can go back to a spot of why if, if only's and the wonder if we had done something different. But I am reminded that the Bible says there is a time for all things. Our own free will and choices makes somethings happen that is good and somethings that is very bad. The after effects of one choice can have many consequences of life. Let us remind ourselves that God hears us and knows our heart.
Psalm 34:17-18 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.
He rescues them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
MY CONVERSATION WITH GOD ~ it might be your conversation too.
Here we go:
God ~ it's me again. I am calling upon your name to find peace in the middle of my heart. I see things around me that make me wonder about life. I see that people hurt on days with a title and they cry for situations out of their control. I don't know what to tell them at times, other than you have a plan, a promise and a future found in Jeremiah 29:11. I am human and I feel the pain of their hearts as I listen closely to words that come through a phone conversation. It's hard to understand your plan of taking our loved ones at different ages. I spoke to a young mom who had to buried her son, an older mom who had to buried her teenage daughter and the list goes on. Adults who needs to help their aging parents in a care home or at home. The craziness of living in one day and forgetting that you are a breath away. I see you at work behind the scenes of pain to bring gain in some way. I am glad you see my heart and now the desires of it. I believe you have given me wisdom to share with others. To live one day at a time and count blessings through it all. Anyway God, thank you for listening while I write my blog. I ask blessings upon the readers of my blog, their families and friends. I ask for peace in the middle of their now of life and help them beyond words. AMEN
I am not saying that is your prayer, but I am sure that someone who reads this can relate to it. I felt to share that prayer and the hope of a new day. Nope, not all things will return to your normal and you are faced with a new normal. Hard as it can be, God is still there and waiting for you to turn it to him. That is much easier said that done.
Well, enough for now my friends. I know as Mother's Day approaches quick, so does thoughts. The struggles of yesterdays, living in today and memories beyond words. Don't let this weekend go crazy inside your head. Somethings of your life was never your fault. Letting go of things you can not change and moving into a new day. Have a little talk with Jesus and believe big. If you feel that you can't do this alone, you are not alone. I am writing now and hear the hearts of hurting people. I care and so does Jesus. Let him take it all and take a deep breath.
I've been hurt, I felt pain and I continue to push back some flashbacks of my own light. We have all made mistakes and letting go is a must in life. I value your time and that you read this. I hope this day is a true blessings.
