There is so much brokenness in the world…so much pain. I’ve seen it in so many faces recently…heard it in so many voices…and today it is breaking my heart. The holiday season is the greatest time of year for so many people, but for others it is the painful, almost unbearable reminder of loss, brokenness, or pain.
If you are one of those people, I want you to know that today I am writing for you.
I am praying for you, and have been praying for you for months. I might not know your name or your sorrows, but I’m praying for you…for every single person needing healing this holiday season more than anything else.
For every person who has lost a loved one to sickness, accident, suicide, or old age.
For every person who is lonely or feeling abandoned.
For every person who has been betrayed and feels like their heart has been ripped out of their chest.
For every person who desperately needs hope.
For every person who feels like giving up.
For every person who feels like they’re carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders.
For every person who is trying so hard to be brave for the people they love, but who are running out of strength.
For every person who has cried out to God for help but hasn’t seen him answer.
For all the brokenhearted.
For you…wherever you are.
Don’t give up, you dear soul. Don’t despair.
I wish I could hold your hand while you poured out your heart to me, and give you a shoulder to cry on. I wish I could hug you, and prove to you that you are more loved than you know.
Because you are loved.
And even though I can’t personally reach you, and befriend you, and show you pieces of the love of God who dearly loves you…I can at least write this, and hope that somehow it will find you.
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted; he saves those whose spirits are crushed.”
You have not been forgotten this holiday season, and you are not forgotten now. And I am praying, so, so much, that the God who made, knows, and loves you will meet you right where you are this Christmas and begin the beautiful work of healing that your life and heart needs most ❤
