Don’t Lose Heart
Therefore we do not lose heart though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. - 2 Cor. 4:16 Mess.
How do you not lose heart when so much bad stuff happens even on a daily basis. You give it to God! Ya, really give it to God. I lost the love of my life last month, but I did not lose my heart. I had and still have the love of my Savior. I have asked this for years, “How do people make it without HIM?"
I think, more than ever, we are seeing and experiencing heartache everywhere we turn. The world, as a whole, is one big chaotic mess. “Stop I want to get off." Sorry, ain’t your choice. I think before we get off, we must stand up - we must stand up with and for Jesus.
My heart is full of sorrow, but I have Jesus. What does that mean? I so miss my husband, but I have a friend in Jesus who never leaves me. Someday, everyone has to leave, but Jesus is always and forever. Makes me want to shout! I may be wasting away, but I am full of the love of Christ. I know He is preparing a place for me. (I am beginning to have more on that side.) He wants to prepare a place for you, also, if you will let Him.
Don’t wait. Don’t let the sorrows of this world choke you out. Reach up to Him. He will grab you, get your home ready, and sustain you while you are still here. Get your heart in the permanent sand.
