Do you have anyone in your life that you are hurting for?
Perhaps you are thinking of a loved one going through difficult circumstances, or you know someone making poor or dangerous choices.
Maybe the person you are thinking of is sick, addicted or being abused.
If you have the least bit of empathy, you feel their pain and want to help.
I don’t know about anyone else but sometimes I hurt so deeply for people I cry. I want to run to them and make it all better…to take away their pain, their illness… the addiction.
When I start to feel these deep, deep emotions, my thoughts turn to God – our loving, deeply merciful God. I experience just an inkling of the depth of love and longing I imagine He feels when He looks upon us – those He created.
I know the love and mercy of God. I have experienced it and live in it. My prayer is that if you don’t know God this way, that you will. And if you do know Him, that you will cry out to Him on behalf of those wounded, hurting souls that you know and are aware of.
Please reach up and accept the love God so generously pours out on us through His Son – Jesus.

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.” ~ Luke 13:34
[God Is Gracious and Just] Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for Him [since He will never fail them]. ~ Isaiah 30:18 The Amplified Bible
