For This We Have Jesus.

Sometimes I am so sad for the heartaches of many among us. I remember a speaker whose main thought for each heartache and burden was, “For this we have Jesus.”

For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt.

I am mourning;

Astonishment has taken hold of me.

Is there no balm in Gilead,

Is there no physician there?

Why then is there no recovery

For the health of the daughter of my people? NKJV Jer 8:21-22

Have you lost a loved one? “For this we have Jesus.”

Do you think you have failed as a parent? “For this we have Jesus.”

Are you lonely, feeling rejected? “For this we have Jesus.”

Do you think He has forgotten you? “For this we have Jesus.”

He is the balm for our souls and He is ever present through all that we go through in this life. He is the balm that heals us and our loved ones. He is the comforter for those who mourn. He is the answer to the addiction. He carries our loved ones home into His great Father arms when the pain of living this life is too much for them. For all these things we have Jesus. And He is always enough.

I’m leaving you with a beautiful quote to encourage you by Nancy Cobb and Connie Grisgby :

Do you feel inept, unqualified, or just not up to it? God understands

your feelings, your doubts, your fears. He also knows your heart, and

can work mightily in one that's yielded to Him. You are a diamond--a

diamond in the rough--a diamond in the making. Place yourself in the

hands of the Master Jeweler, Jesus Christ. Allow Him to chisel you, mold

you, and refine you. -Nancy Cobb and Connie Grisgby
