One Good Thing Every Day: May 12, 2013
As a mother, I wish I could ease my children's pain. Soothing wounded spirits is not the same as kissing skinned knees. How can I help them heal if I need my own spiritual heart health restored?
On this Mother's Day, I celebrate God's infinite parental protection. His healing surpasses surface solutions, those treat 'em-street 'em band-aids. He starts with the heart, bypassing sin's clots, and prescribes His Presence for our aching souls.
"‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
"Instead of trying harder to help people through your own paltry supplies, become aware of My unlimited supply, which is accessible to you continually. Let My Love envelop your outreach to other people." from Sarah Young's Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence
