It is well!
As I sit here in the midst of invoices, I have an urge to speak up. It’s a deep seeded desire to speak up for those who are in the midst of storms in their lives. It’s the need to encourage those who feel like they have no voice. It’s for those who have lost their voices due to daily cries for help. You may be in a storm — the kind where you feel like you only have two choices 1.) let the current from the waves move you to the unknown of your present situation or 2.) sink into the abyss of nothingness – the numb feeling of succumbing to a fate you have tried for so long to avoid but it becomes that menace. You know the parasite that is hard to get rid of.
Where ever you go it seems like problems pursue you. You long for peace from the headache, the heart ache, and the hurt. You long for escape from the broken promises and unmet expectations….from the times you said you would not do it again
only to find your self mingled in a toxic cocktail of sin and secrets.
This short note is for you:
It is well!
God’s strength is strong enough to carry you through dark and low valleys. He bids you come if you need comfort and gives rest for the weary soul. Know that a spirit broken and a heart oh so low will not be despised.
So your home may be falling a part… Your marriage is on the rocks… a loved one is slipping right before your very eyes… The diagnosis received by the doctor was not envisioned in your life plan. Such big curve balls in this game of life especially when we only learn how to plan by each day that we live.
It is well!
You are drowning in debt and your house is being eyed by the bank for foreclosure due to a few missed payments, your spouse just lost his/her job and there is a baby on the way. Right now for you…life just sucks…I know someone who was in good company with you. Here is his story. He even penned a famous hymn about it. Does it sound familiar? You may not believe it right now but…
It is WELL!
How do I know? Let me let you in on a little secret:
. This is how the ultimate story ends:
“God will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” And the one sitting on the throne said,
“Look, I am making everything new!”
And then he said to me,
“Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”
– Revelation 21:4-6
