My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. – Psalm 119:50
Sometimes you don’t need a lecture or a Red Sea Miracle, nor do you need advice or a sermon. When you are broken or discouraged all you do need is kind word and someone to listen to your problems. Sometimes the best cure for loneliness, depression and and angst are the comforting arms of a kind person. Someone with whom you can have a healthy chat with. Someone who will not judge or condemn you. Someone who loves you just as you are, accepts you just as you are. Someone who can understand the pain, the worry, the angst and the agony of the trials and tribulations that you are facing.
Sure, you can handle the struggles, pain, frustration, disappointment, humiliation, defeats and the tears of everyday ministry and in your personal life. This can be accomplished by prayer and fellowship with supporting Christians.
But what happens when you can no longer handle them? What is left if? Where can you turn? Nowhere but back to the throne.
David said, ”My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.”
Cheer up! Your faith in the Creator will see you through, for the knowledge of what He can do will be with you.
