My dear sisters in Christ I know there are many of you that are presently struggling with prodigal children. There are many of you struggling with marriages on the verge of breaking up. There are many of you in difficult circumstances who fully understand the words of David when he cries out,
"How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart all the day?" (vs 1-2)May I encourage you to not forget that God hears the cries of your heart. He hears the prayers that you find difficult to even utter.
Remember dear daughters of the King, He has not forgotten you. Even in the midst of your hardest days you can say along with David,
"But I have trusted in Your loving kindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, Because He has dealt bountifully with me."(vs 5-6)My Father in heaven, I lift up my sisters in Christ who are currently struggling with circumstances that seem impossible. Help them to see and know that nothing is impossible with You. Help them understand that You are answering their prayers, even if they don't "see" evidence of it. Father may their hearts stay focused on You, may they know and rest in Your loving kindness. May their hearts rejoice, not because of the trials of life, but because You are with them, You are sovereign and You alone are in control. Lift their hearts so that they can sing praises to You...even now Lord Jesus comfort them with Your Spirit.
