Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted!”
HIS Delivery Vessels!
Empathy gives way to Transaction as the pace of Tragedy quickens.
Fewer tears and less Time then are shared with those suffering. Such souls then thus starved for Redemption!
How grieved every heart so afflicted; whose Anguish continues — unfettered! Who still long for Compassionate hands and great healing; is there no one left to bring Comfort?
THAT touch which remains yet elusive must come from most unlikely sources! For the wounded beside you, I say, “Stretch towards these!” Yes, stand in the gap to restore them!
Outpouring HIS love is our blessing and HE wholly rewards those who feed. Yea! Who do not hold onto their pains above others whilst — with Selflessness — giving their share.
Now reach ‘cross the mat which you lay on! and encourage each patient to rise! For the salve which GOD grants us — more oft — is anothers! So, as HE designed, hasten to them!
As HIServant bringing you HIS healing salve and HIS love,
Devotional: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Praise be to the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the FATHER of compassion and the GOD of all comfort, 4 WHO comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from GOD.”
You see, we’re all awaiting restoration from above, from CHRIST our LORD! But we all have HIS outpouring of Empathy to give others.
“How then since I have nothing left?” At times we all voice this cry and I’m reminded that those with a loving spouse can comfort those without one.
I’m reminded that those who have gone through a SPECIFIC great loss can still bring healing salve to those enduring a DIFFERENT one!
Does that resonate with you; does that make sense? 🙂
It’s just like the little flashlight left in the dark who laments that they’re not strong enough to shed much light.
But GOD! HE sends us into other’s shadows and the glow which we label “Insufficient!”…is to the one who cries out in their darkened room…a beacon! GOD’s lighthouse in an earthly vessel!
So look around you for those struggling differently than you and serve them relentlessly! What you’ll find with such continued outpouring is as the ending of another poem GOD gave me.
Whene’er you see a teardrop fall from any one in view…then go and catch it so the next time, one will come and comfort you!
Now go, Beloved! As HIS Delivery Vessels…GO! With GOD’s blessings!
Amen and amen!
