In This world we will have trouble,
but take heart, I have overcome the world... Jesus.
It saddens my heart to realize that no matter how much we let our lights shine out to the world, how ever nice we are, how ever much we try, try and try again to be Jesus to those in and of the world... there will always be those who take advantage, who hurt us and who deny us goodwill.
It hurts deeply when this happens, cutting to the heart. Sometimes that pain lasts for a long time, however, we must be strong and believe in the Lord that He will heal our wounds; He will and does as we rely on Him.
There are also times when this pain comes back, triggered by events out of our control, or people... then once again we turn to the Father, the only One who can heal us.
This might seem like an arduous task because it is almost a guarantee that as long as we live in this world there will always be people who hurt, disappoint or attack our hearts... but take heart dear friends...
God is waiting, He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Today, tomorrow, and always allow Jesus to take our pain.
Hugs and blessings to you.
