|Go ahead and cry. I'll catch your tears. - Jileen Russel|
I forgot to share this card with you last week, but I was reminded anew of the personal anguish going on all around me yesterday. And a further push came to share it, as God's heart for those of you struggling right now, last night at the John Mark McMillan concert. He said, "Life hurts. ...And if we're honest, it hurts a lot." He went on further to share that out of a difficult season in his life came this beautiful song, How He Loves (yes, this is a John Mark McMillan song, not Dave Crowder):
I hope that if you are a person hurting right now, that God is using this post to touch your heart and let you know that He loves you and is catching your every tear; he is Abba, steadfast, peace and comfort.
If life is going well, I'm genuinely happy for you and I pray that this message will bring you comfort when you are having a hard season in life.
Finally, the inside of the card reads,
So no matter the season of life - the good, the bad or the blah - may we all remember this and lean on Him. He is always here with us; He is for us.
It is my prayer for you that His peace would be yours and that you would know His love today and always.
