In Your Time of Need

There comes a time in life when we have to let go and trust all we are and can be to the Giver of life. There is a time of hurt that only God can understand, a time of deepest need that cannot be ministered to by a human friend. There is an anxiety that cannot be resolved, a pain that cannot be relieved, a feeling that cannot be healed by anything another may say or do.

It is only as we give up our desperate efforts and give God total control that we can experience true healing. This healing may not be as we expect, but entrusting our life to the Good Shepherd will ultimately be the best choice that can be made. For in giving your life to Him, He will take your burdens and hold you in His comforting arms. He is the only one who can truly understand. You are upheld in love and in prayer.

I have many friends with whom I am in fellowship with, but you are right. At the end of the day, God is the only one who truly understands. (I am working through this issue with some Franciscan brothers and sisters right now. Timely post.)

HI Elizabeth ,

I posted this here because i have recently went thru a series of frustrations in this area and have been completely taken aback by the reality of this, we do get desperate in life often and in that desperation we are vulnerable to satan's onslaught and suggestions against us. I am at the place where it's ok now and I have less expectations than I have ever had in regard to others - God truly cares and what He wants is for us to truly care for Him and for others. God bless u and thanks for visiting, Ruth
