Words to SPARK your Heart-Song – Episode #189

Hurting and Helping

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song.  This is being recorded the day after tornadoes hit in Indiana and Ohio. The amount of injuries, deaths, and damage is not known at this time. What is known is that people are hurting and others are helping.

That’s the way of this world, isn’t it? Sometimes it’s our turn to hurt, and sometimes it’s our turn to help. If you are hurting due to the force of nature, may your hurting body, heart, and mind be cared for and loved.

There is a much bigger possibility, though, that your hurts aren’t due to the force of nature, but to other circumstances. When our hearts are troubled for whatever reason, and others don’t seem to be able to help, there is still hope. Romans 12:12 says, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Whatever your situation is today and in the coming weeks, may this verse speak to your heart. May you hope for healing. May you remember you are loved by a mighty God. May you remember he wants to share in your hurts and healing.

And if you are so distressed that this verse does not speak to your heart, please reach out to those around you who can help. It may be your turn to hurt, but that means there are others with a turn to help.

Hurting and helping will always be with us, but the same is true of healing and hoping!

Live the way you want to be remembered.
