I saw you today.
I know you’re tired…sick and tired.
I saw you struggling, trying to be brave, trying to hold on.
I saw you on your knees as you cried out to Me for answers.
I heard you cry..How long Lord? How long must I go on like this?
I heard your thoughts before you put them into words.
You wonder where I am. You ask if I know what you’re going through. You wonder if I care.
I See you. I hear you. I KNOW.
I know what it’s like to feel helpless,
to be so afraid that your sweat turns to blood,
to feel like you’re holding on by a thread,
to feel so much pain it takes your breath away,
to feel like your stomache is turned inside out,
to have every breath feel like needles in your chest,
to be so weak that your legs give out from under you,
to be thirsty but you’re unable to keep anything down,
and to feel that your entire world has been pulled out from under your feet.
I KNOW. I’VE BEEN THERE.
I was BETRAYED, STRIPPED, BEATEN, HAD THE SKIN RIPPED FROM MY BACK, I WAS TORTURED, HUNG TO DIE, and CRUCIFIED ALONE ON A CROSS.
I KNOW WHAT BEING ALONE FEELS LIKE.
By MY stripes, because of my suffering and Death, you are HEALED. Isaiah 53:5
I did not promise this life would be easy. I did not promise that you would never be sick or feel pain. I never promised an easy path to follow.
I did promise that I would be the light in your darkest hour.
I promise to listen when you talk to me.
I promise to be your strength and your fortress.
I promise that My grace will be sufficient for you.
I promise you victory over death.
I promise to send the comforter and healer which is My HOLY SPIRIT.
I promise to never leave you nor forsake you.
AND I KEEP MY PROMISES!
