The Balm of Gilead is For You
There is One who yearns for you to let Him carry those things. He wants us to lean into Him and let His grace and mercy bear what we cannot bear. There is joy to be found even in the times when we can't see or feel it. You can choose to walk alone in despair or resentment and anger, but there is another option available to you. God waits for you to ask Him to pour His balm over you; His healing, soothing balm.
What if He is just waiting for you to ask? What if there is joy waiting for you in the midst of pain and suffering? Get somewhere where you can be alone with Him and just listen...listen to your heart, because that's where He'll speak to you. Imagine holding your pain up to Him and His sweet balm covering it in grace and mercy. Then let Him minister His love to you. Let Him hold you and fill you with peace and joy.
I don't know why I'm writing this today. I know it's for someone but I don't know who. The Lord put these words on my heart and I knew I had to write them. If you're reading this and you know someone who is struggling with something that seems beyond their ability to cope, please share this post with them. There is One who will see them through place and bring them out on the other side! He sees us as valuable and precious and He is waiting for us to reach to Him, to come to Him!
