How common has it become that there is none who never gone through depression!?
How common has it become that we can count the days we are at peace hard than the days we are with broken heart?!
How common has it become that once called abnormal?!
My brother, my sister, are you the same? Are you in a situation that you cannot see a way out as you keep on drowning in your sorrows? Are these tears are of no help?
Let me tell you, you are stronger than the trouble that you are in. Not because who you are but whom we have.
God, the Father is with you. He made you so would not He care for you? Yes, and this is what He says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
- Matt. 11:28-30
See, He will give you rest. This is what your Maker is saying:
"Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." - Isaiah 46:4
So what should you do?
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
"The healthy don't need a physician but the sick need Him"
It hurts when people deny the good news that you wanna share that benefits them. But today, God has showed me that those who don't need Him would not care to listen about Him nor the salvation that He wants to pour out onto that house. But He has many people that He want us to go to and give them the life.
The trials, defeats, and persecution comes. But remember, you have your Father who never leaves and those whom you are fighting for don't. Give the love you are given. Freely!
As promised we are here with the surprise!
