Are You Struggling?
Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love to be with my family and to celebrate the birth of Christ. Every emotion I have seems to be heightened and my senses more acute.
However, for many, Christmas is a time of heightened sadness and overwhelming depression. Grief, loneliness, financial worries and so many kinds of pain all tend to come to the surface for many during this season of celebration. My heart aches for them, and for the pain that they feel. However, there is hope.
There is a healer.
Are you struggling with grief because of an empty chair this holiday where one you have loved has sat before?
Are you burdened with bills and an empty wallet in a season of material obsession?
Are you feeling overwhelmed?
Is your marriage and family crumbling?
Are you facing sickness that seems impossible to face?
Nothing is impossible with God. He knows your every need and can mend the broken. He can fix the things that seem unrepairable. Nothing is out of his reach, and He sees all things. Past, present, and future -- beginning and the end -- they are all in His hands.
He is our Healer.
I hope that you will be encouraged by His promise that He will never leave you or forsake you. He never promised that we would not have problems in life. However, through Him, we can face whatever comes our way. Trust him as your healer. I pray that you will be encouraged today by the words of this song.
