Someone Is Listening

Most of you know I was bedridden for a long time last year. My family took such great care of me, along with close friends and my church family. I couldn't wait to be able to return the favor!

I have been blessed with many opportunities to help others lately. Some in big ways and other times by just listening to them share their heart.

So many families I know have been hit by one tragedy or another lately. Several of them have lost their child either to suicide or an accident.

I don't know if you are like this or not, but I am never sure what to say when someone loses a loved one. especially a child. But I have noticed these families have called me needing to talk and cry with someone.

Although the circumstances are uneasy, I am thankful that they feel they can call on me to help. When I am on the phone with them I am constantly asking God to give me the right words to comfort them and help them.

I know He does help! Usually after the phone calls I can't really remember what I said, but I know through Him the words they needed to hear have been spoken. They are His words. Not mine.

You know, there are days when I feel like no one is listening to me and I long to have someone to share my heart with and comfort me. Then I realize that I have someone wanting to my desires, my fears and my joys.

Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Christ is available to me 24.7.365! And who better to talk with and seek direction from? Or cry to when I am burdened? Or laugh with when I am joyful?

And knowing that He has my best interest at heart is all the more reason! He won't lead me astray and in the worldy direction I sometimes desire.

There is no need for any of us to ever feel alone in this world. We have a friend that loves us like no other and wants to hear from us. Any time. Day or night!
