The Father’s Heart
I am sorry you are experiencing pain. If you lived in a perfect world, it would be pain free. That was my original plan. No pain; all peace. If you will allow it, your pain will pull you close to me. When you surrender your pain, I will show you purpose in it. But, as long as you begrudge it and continually say “Why is this happening to me” I cannot use you for my Kingdom purpose. Have Trust in me even when you do not understand, knowing without doubting that I do not make mistakes, and I can make good from everything. Its ok for you to have moments of fear, doubt and unbelief, but you cannot live there. If you focus on the pain, you will have nothing but torment in your life. Your focus must be on me. Drop the tough attitude, and run to me with your pain – I will cry with you and I will heal your hurt.
I Love you ~<3~
2 Corinthians 1:3-8
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. 8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.
1 Peter 4:12-19
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” 19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
ENLIGHTENED By The Lord
