“I am your Comforter. I am comforting you with the comfort that represents My character and My love for you. Sorrow and sighing flee away at the comfort that I release and impart to you this day. Be not dismayed or in sorrow for is there no depth of heartbreak that I am not the balm – the balm of Gilead in time of need? Trust Me. Things are not hopeless though things look out of order in a major way in your life. Others look at your suffering and shake their head and cannot image how such devastation can be endured. They have no idea – no concept of the fluid love of My full affection that is yours in the midst of the dark time. When you are in need and when you can no longer restrain your grief – just let it go and turn to My embrace.
You don’t have to run to Me in such times because I have already hastened to you. When you are hurting I am not going to show up with a Sunday School lesson. I am going to show up with the tenderness and gentleness that is My identity when you need Me to be that for you. What do you need for Me to be in your life today? What is the shape of the void that is throbbing and aching in your heart to be filled? I am your friend, your Father, your Lover, your Brother, I am all those things and I don’t need anyone’s help or permission to display that radical favor in your life. So accept this and release yourself to the saturation of My passion and love and carefulness for you this day for I am capturing and captivating you to such a degree that you won’t even remember the grief or sorrow or disappointment of the day.” – Father’s Heart Ministry
What beautiful encouragement for this Friday morning. Don’t y’all agree?
So many times when we are struggling, our good-intentioned Christian brothers & sisters will give us a “word” or 10 scriptures to memorize.
Now, hear me –I am NOT downplaying the VITAL importance of hiding the word deep in our hearts. What I am talking about is how some things don’t get any ease – any relief – if we don’t just simply run & fall at our savior’s feet. I know for me, there are times when nothing else helps. I mean nothing.
On my face in my lil apartment, in that sacred place on the carpet ~ always-always soothes whatever is quaking my soul.
I trust Him above all others. Implicitly.
I feel the safest with Him.
I know He never steers me wrong.
And He never leaves me ~
He will never forsake me.
What is weighing you down today? What are you facing?
Bring it to Jesus.
Lay it at His feet & let your feelings fly – all of it.
He can handle it.
No matter if it is the 100th time this week.
It’s ok. Really.
He’s got you.
Much love y’all & taking the untouchable things straight to the floor,
