I have several real life (IRL) and “internet” friends who are hurting. A parent in hospice, a son’s untimely, sudden death, layoff following layoff, unresolved hurt. You name it, it’s going on. I shared the following with a group of friends a couple of weeks ago at a prayer/encouragement evening. I wanted to give my friend Martha credit for writing it, but she says did use it at a women’s retreat several years ago, but couldn’t take credit for authoring it.
Well, whoever the author is, several scriptures throughout the Bible were compiled to sound like a letter from God to His Beloved. That’s you, you know. You are His Beloved, even when you don’t feel like it. Even when your life doesn’t look like it.
Thinking of my friends, wherever you are today.
Take care, friends.
