A Sister’s Cry

Sometimes things just don’t make sense. How can it be such a beautiful day and something so terrible be going on inside someone that they would try to take their own life? How can someone be hurting so bad that they no longer want to exist while at the same time others are on top of the world? How could I have missed it? Why did I not see the hurt or feel the pain? How could I have been so blind?

I asked the Jesus, “Why must there be so much pain? Why must there be death?”

He replied,

“I give healing and life, those who come to me will never die”

“I am the love that never leaves”

“I am the one who hears the cries of those who call”

“I am the one who will catch them when everything comes crashing down

“I am the strength when they can’t fight anymore”

“I am the hope when it feels like hope is lost”

     “Right now things may seem out of control but never forget that I am in control.

Yes! He is in control!

Right now

Right this moment

I lay my broken heart at his feet, reach my hands out and shout “Hallelujah!”

I will praise him because he deserves to be praised.

Right now things seem so terribly out of control but I know God is in control!

He is the hope.

He is the strength needed to fight the good fight.

When everything came crashing down he caught it all.

He heard my call.

He never leaves.

He is protector, healer, and almighty comforter.

He is love.

I have seen his power and I will continue to put all my hope in him.

I know He will hear the cries of those who are hurting.

He will reach down and wrap them his loving arms.

He will hold them, protect them and heal them.

He will give them peace.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

This is what I pray for today will you join me?

  1. Dear T, I’m not sure if it is your Sister or a Christian Sister but either way I know and understand your confusion in what she has tried to do and her fear in trying to end her life. I came very close to ending mine years ago, even after having been in a Church but Jesus rescued me and it was not because of my goodness but His Mercy and Grace, I really believed I deserved not to be Loved by anyone especially God. I will leave the link for you, to save detail here.
    With me it was because of an Addiction that gave Satan a foothold but when I came to heart repentance and turned away from evil asking Jesus to lead me into all Truth, I understood as you shared so beautifully all about His great Love, Mercy and faithfulness, it is not God’s will we suffer, it grieves Him.

    1. Hi Anne, thank you for your encouragement and also for leaving the link to your own story. I can not say who it is for privacy of the person but it just really makes me sad that someone would hurt so bad that they feel the need to take their own life. God has reassured me that he has her and though I still feel sad for her to feel that way I do know he has everything all under control. I will be popping over to your blog now to read your post. Thank you for leaving me the link.
