    Heavenly rain brings renewal and hope.

    Everyone struggles through crisis situations from time to time. You find yourself in the midst of conflict and it hurts. It’s a part of life. But, how do you face the trials of life and find the joyful strength to persevere? Where do you find the comfort to move forward through the painful moments, when it hurts so much that screaming out loud feels like the only way to express your grief?  

    Cry out to God. He cares for you.

    Don’t immerse yourself in drugs and alcohol. Don’t withdraw into a cave and hide. Don’t strike out at the first available person who walks through that door. Don’t blame others or your circumstances. Don’t get even. Don’t be jealous of someone who seems to have it all. All these reactions lead to more trouble and pain.

    Cry out to God. Tell Him where and how it hurts. He cares for you. He has the power to reach into your pain and bring you comforting hope and peace. He has lifted my pain, soothed my aching heart, and imparted hope many times. He has poured fresh heavenly rain into my soul and softly spoken of His everlasting love for me… my sweet, sweet Jesus.

    Jesus understands betrayal. One of his companions turned him over to his enemies for money. He understands the struggle to overcome the self. His sweat was drops of blood in the Garden of Gethsemane as He prepared to go to the cross. He was mocked and beaten, and then tortured on a cross. Still, He said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” What amazing love is this!

    He is the God of hope and comfort. Cry out to God. He will help you.

    Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15: 13).

    We are living in a moment of time. In Jesus, we live into eternity.
