A Whisper Of Love’

Sometimes a whisper from Heaven to our souls is all we need to get us through. I love this verse and this promise from Isaiah don’t you?

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:” Isaiah 40:4

Such a glorious word of the prophecy of our Saviour’s coming to earth. A glorious story ~ A story with far-reaching impact. A story that reaches farther than just a fable on this old earth because its truth reaches into the hearts of men to seek and to save the lost and to bring salvation into this wretched, sin-sick world of just bad and all gone wrong! To bring healing into hearts shattered with pain and hope into the broken and anguished stories of our lives. Oh, beautiful soul, how lovely it is to celebrate His unconditional love for us even in our darkest of the night’s moments. Our Savior’s divine and royal birth, whispers from the heavens to our souls and reminds us clearly,

“I came to help you through all the hard times and to uphold you through all the horrific moments that each one must bear over the course of a lifetime. I didn’t send the pain, but I came to ease it and carry the burden of it. Give it to me and let me bear it, for its weight is heavy, and its anguish is too great for one as beautiful as you.”

The glory of the Lord was revealed on that night, long ago when His light illuminated the dark, to announce His birth to shepherds who kept watch over their flocks by night. It still shines brightly in our night to day. Our nights of anguish, sadness, loneliness, fear, hurt, rejection, unfairness, brokenness, and pain. Its hope shines brightly to bring us peace through it all and to lead us through to level ground!

Do you know Him through your sorrow? Can He share your burden at this Christmas time? Can He give you Hope for even this? Can He grant you a peace that goes beyond all understanding, for such a time as this? That’s what He does! I love how He does it!

“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:” Isaiah 40:4 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27

When Life Hurts

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

Remember Joseph? He was rejected by his brothers and abandoned. Later, falsely accused and imprisoned by his employer! Forsaken and in prison, living the life of a loser, we might think if we looked through eyes of judgement rather than “Grace.”

Life was so unfair yet Joseph, rather than wallowing in self pity rallied to become a trusted leader in the jail. You see, he was forgotten by others but not by God. God had a plan through it all and Joseph gained unmerited favour in his captor’s eyes, was released from his prison and elevated to the second highest in command over Egypt! It was all in God’s plan! His grace sustained Joseph through the deep loss and pain of life.

When life hurts, walk with God through it. Make the right choices and let His grace release you from the prison that holds you in bondage, whatever prison that might be. He gives strength, grace, healing and mercy for the rejection, abandonment and all the unfairness in life. He will meet you where you are to shower you with unmerited favor and bring you through victoriously.

“Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus…endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 2: 1,3

Rejected?

“But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

We live in a culture where image is everything. It screams at us from the billboards, the media and the magazines. Everything about life says image is where it’s at and it’s all about me: how I look, how I excel and how much I deserve it. It’s about my rights and me, me, me. It’s the concept of how good can “I” look in the eyes of others that drives us on a wild goose chase in relentless pursuit of illusive happiness. Choosing to live this way leaves us empty and confused. How deceived we are when we get caught in the enemy’s trap where image also becomes our perception of others as well and our observations of externals control our conclusions about them. God views us so differently as He sees past all the surface, the masks and the façade. He sees the hurt and confusion as He peers into the deep motivations of the heart and soul to the true character of the person. He alone, can change a soft heart and create an inner beauty that allows us to see ourselves and others in different light. In His light! The light of His love! Let’s also remember that God chooses different people for different things. God’s rejection of Eliab was not a rejection of the person himself, or of the way he looked, but simply a rejection because He had another choice for the job at hand. He had another man whose destiny it was to be king. It was to be David and David it was! We do well to remember this, when things don’t go for us, as we think they should. When doors close for us and seem to open for others, It’s not God rejecting us, but simply saying that what we have in mind is not what He has in mind for us. David was a man after God’s own heart. If our hearts are right and righteous before God, He will use rejections to open up new doors for our destiny. That’s what He does. I love how He does it.
