“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 (NKJV)
I know times are hard and you feel like giving up.
Everything seems to go wrong, and your little problems begin to add up.
You start to doubt yourself and question if you’re going to make it.
It seems so hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel from where you stand.
You feel as if you are stuck with no way out.
You are filled with tears rolling down your face every single night.
You beg for someone to tell you everything will be alright.
You feel lonely and hopeless.
You continue to feel sad and you still have tears in your eyes.
You wonder if anyone could possibly understand.
You search for answers from people who can’t seem to help you out.
Feeling of hopelessness and loneliness consumes you.
You fall down on your knees and you begin to cry.
You start praying and saying things from your heart.
You soon feel God’s hand wiping away your tears.
And He reassures you everything will be alright.
There has never been a day, where I have sought, pleaded and begged God and He didn’t come through for me. He always answers and reassures us everything will be alright. You must learn to seek God, because only He has the power to change your circumstance. Only He can open locked doors that no man can open. Only He can turn darkness to light and only He can build you a road when there is no way out. Don’t forget, it was God that parted the Red Sea.
God tells us over and over again, He is always there when we need Him, but we have to go to Him. As our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ tells us, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV.
My Dear Sister, I wish I could promise you a life with no pain or sorrow, but I can’t. You must know life comes with the ups and downs. Some of your days will be hard and some will be easy, but you will need God by your side every single time. With God, you will learn to smile again. Always remember….everything you are going through is for a moment and brighter days are surely on the way!
