I thank God for the soldiers, police officers, fire fighters, first responders, and others who have sacrificed their lives for the good of our country. May we never forget our freedom is not free. It has cost the lives of many brave people. I pray for their families who bear hidden emotional and mental wounds resulting from losing one so dear to them. Bless you and may God shine His healing countenance on You.
I pray for those who got through the battles alive yet are dealing with personal trauma whether physical, mental, or emotional. Hopefully, you are not trying to deal with this by yourself. If you feel that you are all alone, please “comment” in this blog.
Also, to the dear people who work sacrificially day after day caring for individuals who are mangled physically, mentally, and/or emotionally. Thank you! If you are overwhelmed, please “comment” in this blog.
Allow God’s Word to minister to you:
- “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)
- “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)
- Never forget that Jesus calls for us to “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find [w]rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is comfortable, and My burden is light.”
- Jesus states, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
- “Cast all your anxieties on Him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20). Allow Jesus to minister to you. He is always there in the darkest hour and in the moments of deepest hurt.
