Don’t Give Up

When you’re lonely, feeling sad and discouraged don’t give up. When your broken, bloody and  beaten down, don’t quit. When your about to be swallowed up in the pit of despair fear not. For our Creator who holds the world in the palm of His hand is holding you in the other hand. (Callahan)

Let me refer you to a favorite verse of mine in Isaiah 53:4. It said”Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” Not only did Jesus pay the demands for justice so we can repent of our sins, The Savior also bore our grief’s and carried our sorrows. This means that The Anointed One has first hand knowledge of what we feel and how we feel.

Christ knows how it feels for us to be lonely. He knows how we feel when we are discouraged, beaten or bloodied. He has been through all of those emotions we go through. There is no feeling or emotion or experience we have had or ever will have that Jesus has not felt. This means we can turn to our Creator in prayer, through the name of Jesus Christ and receive the healing balm of his grace and mercy.

We really are being held in the palm of His hand.
