You may even be angry with God for letting these things happen to you or your loved ones. I've been there too.
You may wonder why God isn’t answering your prayers, or why His answers are so long in coming. If that's where you are this Christmas let me give you some encouragement from a place where I found it.
Psalms 107:19-20 NLT “ Lord , help!” they cried in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death.
God already knows of the wounds we've carried. He knows the pain we've felt. He knows how much we've tried to let go, and fix things in our own power. Let's set aside our fears and move towards Him today, in faith.
- For He is able.
- He is powerful.
- He cares.
- He heals.
- He restores.
- He redeems.
Even when you feel alone, you aren't.
