I met a beautiful young woman yesterday. I mean beautiful. In this beautiful woman's life is much pain. And as I was speaking to her, I was telling her she needed to let it go, while it would not be easy, she needed to just lay it down at the foot of the cross, and while that would not be easy, that's the only way she will ever get over it.

Only God can bring us that healing.

And as I was speaking to her, I think the Holy Spirit was speaking to me. I could have laughed out loud in joy about how much God loves me. "If you just aren't going to get it Margie, I will show you in another way". Wow. and Duh.

My heart breaks for this young woman, I could have just cried along with her, and she probably never even know what a blessing she was to me yesterday.

2 Thes 2:16-17 16May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
