Broken and Hopeful

We have been so broken for so long.  Illness has plagued us for years now and I have been in bed with my ailing husband caring for me for years.  This morning we received a word from our Pastor in California by way of his Christmas Newsletter.  He reminded us of the hope we have in Jesus Christ, his Covenant with us and ours with him.  As I read the message to Rob, I began to cry and then sob.  Why am I so broken, Lord I cried.  I begged his forgiveness for our lack of faith.  

As I prayed, slowly my hope returned.  My husband came back into the room and prayed with me.  We have had many troubles for many years and have buried ourselves in misery.  

The Lord doesn't want that for any of us!  The day we prayed to receive Him, we were forgiven of all our sins for all time!  Do you understand how wonderful that gift is?  We are His forever and ever and he said that he will never leave us or forsake us.  Do you believe this?  Search your heart to see for in Romans 3:3  “There is none righteous, no, not one; .  But in the instant you come to Him, His righteousness  is afforded to us.  

This day, this hour, this instant, I pray to Jesus to relieve the hopeless, the forgotten, the sinners; to give them new life in him to take away their sins, Oh Lord, give them all a new hope in you for it is not your will that any should be lost.  In Jesus Holy Name, Amen
