Satan paints Jesus in his own colors!
Satan paints Jesus in his own colors. ~ Stephen Charnock
Too often life feels as if someone has quietly and unknowingly tied your shoelaces together, then you step forward. Life hurts. And, you question God again, maybe even raise a fist upwards?
Your misery the good Lord approaches with the most loving intentions. You may not flee the fire, but He stands right next to you in it. Look for Him at your side, He WILL be there.
Jesus does not despise, devalue or disdain the suffering of the afflicted one, NOT AT ALL!
Suffering and hardship are not loss, they are well lit paths into the Lord's arms.
Cast all your anxiety upon Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
God has not left you unattended, yet this is so simple to believe. Please note: The soul would have no rainbows if the eyes held no tears. ~ anon
A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out... (Isaiah 42:3a)
The Last Word:
The Lord seeks our hearts that He may warm them in His safe hands - He will not injure, squeeze or crush. You can trust Him in this. I DO!
