“You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted, you encourage them and you listen to their cry.” Psalm 10:17 NIV

This week, I had planned on writing something entirely different. I had the topic, the scriptures and the words that would soothe the soul and bring encouragement. It was going to be eloquent and profound. I sat at the computer to write but then life happened…

Everything I wanted to say felt fake and contrite. I struggled all week but the right words refused to come out. The more life happened, the more the words eluded me.

So, it’s now Wednesday and I’m still at a loss for words. I don’t know if I want to curse or to cry or whether I should give up or continue to fight. I’m sitting here angry, broken-hearted and disappointed with life. What can I say to encourage you? What can I say to encourage myself?

I can say that God is still good. Even though my heart is broken, He is still healing. Even though I’m unsure about my life, He is still guiding me. Even when I’m at my worst, He is still at His best. Even though I feel as if I’m alone in my struggles, He is still holding me in His hands.

Keep looking up my sisters and brothers in Christ. God still loves us and He hasn’t abandoned us. The sun will shine again, just keep praising Him.

“You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.” Psalm 30:11-12 NIV

  1. Some times we do become lost with words and try to figure out what to say to encourage others and ourselves. All I can say is God is good and His mercy endures forever and ever. If you can’t say anything just wave your hand, you can even moan… God understands that as well!

  2. Thank God for your entry this week. It encouraged me that even when life happens, God is ALWAYS with us to see us through. Keep up the anointed writing, Tam. God bless you.

  3. Yes, God is always there even when it does not seem like it. You be encouraged Tammy. When I don’t know what to say or pray I just raise my hands and remember all the GREAT things GOD has done for me or the situations HE has got me out of or got me THROUGH. GOD is GOOD all the time! Be Blessed.
