Thought of the day – October the 7th

Someone died this very morning. It was not quite what we as a team expected, and that made me gloomy.

Having joy in the midst of sorrow – how to wheep with those who wheep, and having joy at once. Is it even possible?

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and wheep with those who wheep. Can I? Can you?

Wandering in the halls of my hospital, I was wondering. How much comfort am I able to offer those who have no answer to their prayers, not understanding God as they desire… Do I? Understand Him?I might not understand Him, and I am not even daring enough to claim I ever could. But I know Him. He loves. Me. And all the lovable and not so loveable around me. But He loves. Because He is Love. And I delight today in His love and care. I am precious. Everyone of you out there is. Because He created me. And took delight in watching so far over me. And even in the adversities of my life so far, knowing and relishing in His love, I felt at peace – knowing this world is not anymore as it was initially created by God. Seeing it all day long around me. So many cancer patients. So many young patients. So much despair. And so much deceit. Satan is gaining land. But Jesus’ return is close. He is about to come. And there, in the land beyond this created world, there will be peace, and no more pain or suffering. Help me, Lord, not to ever forget all these!

  1. Thanks for stopping by! Glad to have found you! Appreciate your words for the day. I sub in the local public schools and the thing that breaks my heart the most is the use of God’s name in vain–it’s just a part of where we live and it breaks my heart; HOWEVER, there are those glimmers of hope: those students and faculty who are believers who naturally show it and freely share it! Blessings to you!

    • Blessings to you too!!
      We, here in Romania, Europe, don’t have these kind of struggles (so far), but we will pray for yours – since this is what Jesus would definitely do! We learn how to raise our children to honor and praise God’s name. And we “strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of us” (paraph.Phi.3.12b) Let’s pray together for all the persecuted, for all those paying a price for following Him. For “whoever loses his life for His sake will find it” (Mat.16.25b) And so we are to do too. In the very place He set our feet, for this very time. May He strengthen you in doing this!
