Pain Like Sheets of Rain

This is a re-post from a long, long time ago.  I pray it blesses you. 

All I can tell you is this…if you are hurting, if you are lonely, if you feel forsaken and no one will listen…Jesus will.  Jesus will let you lay your head on his lap and cry all the tears you need to cry, as many times as you need to cry them.  I’ve known this for a long time but recently received a crash renewal on it. I’m walking through a season where pain comes in like sheets of rain. It’s been crippling, but there’s no person in my life who has the time or inclination to listen, or even notice right now.  I’m not speaking disparagingly of anyone. In fact, I’m sure I’m guilty of the same for someone else.  Life is just like that sometimes…for everyone.

We are designed for horizontal relationships, as well as a vertical one.  God never intended for people to be alone or to go through life only relating to and with Him. Even so, there are times when God really is all you will have, and I can say from personal experience, that the best gift you can give yourself is an authentic and deep relationship with Him.

Open the door to the most tender and steadfast love you could ever experience.  Allow yourself the space and the grace to ask for and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  You will never, ever regret it.

You don’t need to be a good person or to have lived a good life in order to qualify…you just need an open heart toward Him…for who He is and what He has to offer. 

As it is with anything, the more you put into this relationship, the more you will get out of it.  It’s a rare person who has all their hurts healed the day they ask Jesus into their life.  I certainly didn’t, but giving myself, or in this case, yourself over to Christ allows Him to lead you to that healing.  The healing process takes time, and will require some effort on your part, but if you give him the time and space He needs, He’ll get you there.

He loves you so very much; trust, accept and let Him show you.

  1. Margie I am sincerely sorry you are in the midst of a difficult time. Everything you shared is so true – we all feel as you do at times and have all been the ones who were on the other end. We are created for relationship and cultivating and nurturing the ones we have should be a priority – but only second to our relationship with the Lover of our Souls.
