I don’t understand why you’ve placed me on this journey. Don’t you see that it’s too hard for me?
Do you see me?
Do you care?
Where are you?
Why aren’t you helping me?
How long will you leave me here struggling just to breathe?
I’m drowning in pain; I weep all night long. My cheeks are stained with tears.
How long must I wrestle with these thoughts and live with this sorrow in my heart? I’ve built up all these tall walls around me to keep everyone at a safe distance but I’m lonely, Lord. Heal me because I cannot go one more step. I am faint; my mind is in agony; all night long my soul is in anguish. I’m worn out from all my anxieties.
How long, O Lord, how long?
Sincerely, The Hurt and Broken
Dear the Hurt and Broken,
I have heard your weeping. I keep track of all your sorrows. I have collected all your tears in my bottle. I have recorded each one in my book. There is a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to kill and a time to heal; a time for war and a time for peace. There is time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven. My timing is perfect for I know what I am doing. Although this season hurts, I have a plan for your life, trust me. Do not give up this fight because I know the outcome. I have already won the Victory. Daughter, I love you so much.
I’m sorry that I ever doubted you. I know that you are perfect and holy. I’m so grateful that you hear every tear that falls and answer every request. Help me to take hold of my faith and hang on no matter what the storms of tomorrow bring. Right now hope is dangled in the winds of uncertainty. I don’t struggle with whether you will deliver on your promise to make something beautiful from the shattered remains of my life-I just wonder when. I thank you that I have recovered enough to believe that things will get better…somehow…someway. And maybe, just maybe, you’re not finished with me yet. Please help me to survive until the next chapter of my life.
Sincerely, your Daughter
Dear Daughter, Remember that I am holding you with invisible hands. Don't worry about the rest. Sincerely, God
