Life is a very complicated thing sometimes. You can feel at the top of your game..that everything is going along on a well oiled track and that all that is ahead is sunny days. Until that one day...you know that one day that the rain starts and you are never certain if you will ever feel the warmth of the sun upon your face again. You wonder if it's all worth it...if there is a win at the end of the fight. We have all hit those times I am sure. Some of those times we find ourselves battling through something that seems even larger then Goliath himself and you just don't have the courage or strength of David to go up against it. When you feel that weakness it's hard to imagine ever seeing the other side of the situation.
My heart pains for someone who is a dear friend of mine. Who is feeling pain that I wish I could take from her and give her back her smile. That I could tell her to close her eyes and when she opens them that what she is dealing with in her life right now would be only a bad dream. I promise to her that she will be all right yet know at the same time that those words bring little to no comfort. I am not certain what her life ahead holds...I know that it will be forever changed for her. I hope it brings comfort, as little as that may seem, that God works good from all bad. That he makes flowers grow in a valley after a fire has scorched the land and has only left blackened dirt.
I pray for all of those who are hurting that you are able to find peace and comfort. I pray for those who know someone who is hurting to reach out, no matter how little it may seem, and help bring some comfort during the rain. To give some warmth when things around seem cold. God created us to be together and to bring comfort to those who hurt. While blogging has been a great blessing and has allowed me to make friends, to grow as a person and share my life and faith it has also forced me to open my heart and allow those inside which opens me to feeling pain for those who are feeling pain. I truly believe that my gift from God is empathy for those around me. I feel pain when I see those who are in pain. My mission is to help bring comfort to show love and to help until that pain settles and the sun starts to peek it's rays through those rain clouds.
I dedicate this post to you my dear friend. I am so sorry that you are feeling the cold of rain upon your life. I lift you up in prayers and I am always here when you need someone to help you stand when you feel to weak to do it on your own. I send you all the love in me heart. I promise you that God will continue to shed his love upon you and through this fire he will build you stronger and bring you sunny days as the likes you have not seen. While this pain seems daunting it will end. With all the love in my heart I will always be here for you...for any of you who are in pain I can not offer much but if you need prayers let me know, if you need a shoulder to lean upon I have two, and if you just need a friend that is one thing I can do with ease.
