The Lord is near the brokenhearted; he delivers those who are discouraged
If you are lonely, broken and or hurting – know this: you are not alone and you are loved
2He sprouted up like a twig before God,
like a root out of parched soil;
he had no stately form or majesty that might catch our attention,
no special appearance that we should want to follow him.
3 He was despised and rejected by people,
one who experienced pain and was acquainted with illness;
people hid their faces from him;
he was despised, and we considered him insignificant.
4 But he lifted up our illnesses,
he carried our pain;
even though we thought he was being punished,
attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done.
5 He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds,
crushed because of our sins;
he endured punishment that made us well;
because of his wounds we have been healed.
Isaiah 53: 2-5
Jesus has been there. He knows your pain, dishonor, rejection, grief, betrayal, unjust punishment, impossible burden. He knows, and even if no one else can, He can relate & sympathize with you. He loves you and he wants you to know it.
This is the message that was given at my church this last weekend, feel free to watch it, if you do I promise it will bless your heart & soul. Have a very Merry Christmas & if like me, you are in a place of celebration, be sure to give grace to those who are not there. This can be such a difficult time when life is not going well, such a desperate time when you have lost loved ones. Remember this is not the season of gluttony and trinkets, this is the season of love. So celebrate love by sharing it with someone who does not know it. God bless you all
Amen, Chris!! The beauty of your heart shines through in this post! Thank you…can’t wait to watch the video. 🙂 Merry Christmas, again, Dear Friend!
To you too, hope you had a wonderful family filled day
