Yesterday I read a very touching story on a blog entitled… Where are you? It’s about a parent who is losing their child to an illness and asked God…Where are you? I felt led to write a story and post it in the comment on this writers blog. This is my post for today. Please read the writer’s story on her blog: http://jenchay.wordpress.com/2012/02/16/where-are-you/#comment-441
Here am I
Here I am my child. I have always been here and always will be. Many people have cried out to me wondering where I am. I never hide and am always present. People call on me when their heart is breaking and they can’t take the pain. I’m so glad that they are looking for me. If they only knew I never leave anyone’s side. I feel your pain and hear every word spoken to me. What is my reply? It’s always been the same. I am here. Those who seek me will find me if they search with your whole heart.
I have a gift for you. My word…what you call a bible. In it is all you need to endure anything you may go through. Open my gift. It has many promises I’ve made to you. In it I have said that you will have troubles and all different kinds of troubles, but I will be there to help you. I never said this life would be easy. You will not understand my ways as you are human and it won’t be until you are here with me that you will have perfect knowledge and be able to understand why I allowed things to happen.
My words are not a mystery for those who have accepted my Son and have received my Spirit within them. The bible is a living book and my word will come alive in the hearts of those who believe and trust me.
I wait to comfort those who are broken-hearted. I offer help for the suffering. I give peace to those who have none and offer love to all.
I will be waiting here….waiting for you with open arms. Call upon me…search for me with an open heart and mind. Trust me and trust in me. Seek out those who have experienced this love even in their sorrow and they will testify of my love and grace.
I have so much to tell you….call on me…seek me…I’m waiting………I love you
Message for today: You may walk in through some very fearful things…but if you look for God…He will be there…but the key here is to….look to Him…seek Him out…He IS waiting to hear from you. Even if you’re mad at Him…call on Him anyway…He understands.
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
