ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY-My Christmas Prayer For You
For many, this season will be a time a joy, fun, families, love, and gifts and wonderful memories that will spread through the season without a care. It will be a time filled with warm feelings and comfort and longings met. It is a pleasant time with families, loved ones and new beginning and possible engagements and romances on the horizon.
However, for others this season will be a time of sorrow, pain, longing and memories of those lost during the year and the realization the only time will heal the empty feelings they are left with beating in their heart. It will be a time filled with empty chairs, lonliness, silence, a belief that friends are not around, and hurt will last always.
For those who are alone, sad, hurting and feel untouched during this time, this Christmas Prayer is for you.
For you, I pray for peace. A peace that would reach the deepest reaches of your heart to know that there is no place there is farther than His grasp can reach you
For you, I pray for hope. A hope to know that the memory of past events (great and small) have only been a foundation for the wonderful story being laid out for the marvelous purpose ahead for you.
For you, I pray for joy. A joy so great that no simple act can create and no power of hell can ever stand against.
For you, I pray for comfort. A comfort of mind, spirit and body and rest from all that has been bounding you in trouble, discouragement, suffering and heartache.
For you, I greatly pray for love. A love that would envelope you so deeply and surround you so tightly, all thought of sorrow, hurt and pain would disappear and only the memories the those who loved you well would remain to forever keep their embrace around you.
You are not alone. You are not crazy. You are not the only one. Feel what you feel then hold onto the Truth. So many are praying and lifting you up. Reach out to someone to remember, someone else has and is going down the road you are traveling.
Be encouraged. This is a journey not a destination.
