Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. AMEN

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
