From the Heart of Abba Today:
For the weary ones;
The ones who are overwhelmed;
Those who have lost a sense of purpose or hope:
Simply come to Me,
Just as you are,
Feeling however you feel,
In order to receive from Me
All that you need to take the next step.
Beloved, sometimes the next step,
Is simply admitting that you are
In GREAT need,
Of a touch from Me.
I offer rest for the weary ones,
Hope and strength for those who are overwhelmed,
(As well as rest and respite),
And fresh hope for the hopeless.
We have just come through the second hurricane in a year. For some of us the damage was much less than for others. For some the damage was intense and right now they are facing huge issues. All of us know people who are still without electricity or have damaged property.
Others who do not live in the path of Harvey or Irma, have probably seen photos on TV.
Still others have emotional or physical storms which have ravaged their lives. Or know others who are going through difficult seasons.
I was driving home the other night and the timing was perfect for me to experience sunset all during the drive. This one is the steeple of a church on Baymeadows.
For all of us, the Source and the Help is found in the One who came to carry our burdens for us, to comfort us, to restore us.
Consider pausing a moment to invite God to draw your attention to something lovely this day. God bless each of us and those we love as we, in Florida, continue to recover. And as each of us, wherever we live and dwell and have our being, continue to “draw near to Abba”.
