All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. (The Message)
Isn’t that just beautiful?God certainly doesn’t want us to suffer in pain anymore than I want to watch my five-year get staples put into his head. But, life happens. People get hurt because this world is full of people who hurt people. Not only that, but natural disasters happen for no unforeseen reason, which can land people in a world of discomfort and tragedy.I love how God can take that ugly stuff, the tumultuous situations in our life and redeem them. He redeems them when we use them in the lives of others. He brings healing to our wounded hearts when we give the hope to others that was given to us from Christ.Whatever you’ve walked through…whatever you have endured…whatever path you’ve walked…therein lies your opportunity to bring healing and comfort to another.Pay it forward.Christ did.
