CHRISTMAS CAN BE SAD FOR SOME
Christmas seems to be focused on merriment but for many this season brings great pain and sorrow. There are those who had a terrible childhood and no gifts due to being poor and this holiday opens fresh wounds . For many who have lost loved ones it can be painful. For the spouse who has been hurt and taken to divorce court thus breaking family unity it is painful. Somehow for those suffering there has to be a way to go beyond your pair and live again in the fullness of God's love and glory. The lord does not want you to stay down and in a pit. Many blame the Lord for their losses. God is not a destroyer. Things happen in life. We learn and grow through our pain and loss.God can heal so let Him comfort you and let Him back into your heart and life.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 says " Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
God can heal your wounded heart. Let Him. Cry out to Him. He cares.
PRAYER: Loving father I pray today for those who are suffering and hurting at this time of year. Christmas can be happy and joyful, but for many it is a day of sadness. Help those with pain. Through this time Lord and draw them to you in a special way. In Jesus name. Amen.
