Early Morning Thoughts

This morning I got up to read and just couldn't focus.  Focusing has been hard for me of late...but I kept reading and trying.  Before I knew it I was picking up my journal and writing down the words as they dropped into my thoughts.  I wasn't really sure where the Lord was taking me with it all...or if I would share it...yet here it is.  Uncut and raw...thoughts in the early morning...

It's important everyday to take time to feel and be thankful.  Feel the pain and hurt...then feel the comfort and love.  The pain and hurt of this world...this suffering we must sometimes endure called life.  Yet the comfort and the love of the One who gave us life.  The One who suffered more than we could ever bear so that we could bear the pain that comes when we expect it least...yet know it is inevitable.  Life is filled with much joy but amidst the joy we know that suffering does loom.  For some it is off in the far distance.  For the here and now.  How we each react to that pain within us is up to each of us.  If we have the Lord with He longs to be for us all...we can know and be confident that He is faithful to walk with us and hold us close when we need Him most.  He doesn't seem to stop the pain and suffering from hitting us all...any of us...yet He cushions it...makes it somehow bearable. Because with Him there is a knowing that all the end...will be okay...will be bearable...because there is comfort...His comfort for us all.  All that know Him and stay close to Him.  If you know Him...Jesus...He will bring you through it all and you will be comforted and you will know.  Through Him...with Him...all things will be made new.  All things!  Your body...will be whole and will be healed.  Your mind...will be pain free and without confusion and fear.  All things!  And you are loved.  And they are loved.  Through it all we are held by a loving Savior.  The One that will make all things...all again.  Behold...a Savior is born and He is Christ our Lord!  Wanting nothing more than to hold and comfort you.  Give you the peace that passes all understanding!  Behold and be held by Jesus...our!

And at the bottom of my journal page is this verse;

Psalm 145:13

The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving toward all He has made.
