“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
Reflect and Respond:
Long ago God made a promise to His people that still stands today. We find it in Isaiah 43:1-2. May it be an additional verse of comfort to you today: The one who formed you says,“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you."
Father, You know my heart and my hurts. You know the loss I feel. I know You are nearby, I know You care. I am trusting You to bring me through this time. Please catch my tears, hold me by Your strength, and comfort me through Your spirit. Amen.
