I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
Psalm 40:1-2 (NIV)
Friends, all around us, our world is hurting. We are grieving and fighting and struggling. We are lonely, and it all just hurts.
We know, however, that even in our darkest days, the Lord is close to the brokenhearted. We believe that when we cry out, He hears us. We trust that when we fall down, He will lift us up. And we know that when two or more gather in His name, He is there.
So, let’s gather today and lift up one another, taking all the pain weighing us down straight to the throne. Let’s join hands through our screens, weeping with those who weep and waiting on the Lord who hears our cries.
One of the greatest privileges we have here at (in)courage is turning to God together, lifting up the spoken and unspoken needs of our sisters. Leave a prayer request in the comments and then pray for the person who commented before you. Let us turn to the God who sees and knows everything, who turns to us and hears our cry, and who loves us through it all.
