On June 1st, Love Letters from the Edge releases. Over the next ten days, Wanda and I will be posting notes to the brokenhearted from God taken from Love Letters.
* * *
Have you ever wondered where God is when all the horrible things in life happen to you?
Have you ever felt abandoned and alone? Have you ever prayed a thousand times for the torture of your life to stop until your prayers seemed to stick in your throat?
If you’re like most people I know, the answer is Yes.
Here’s God’s love note to you.
My Beloved Child,
I understand why the world doesn’t make sense to you, and I understand your rage and pain. As you come to know me better, you will recognize that trying to understand answers beyond your comprehension is less important than trusting my character.
Rescue is not always about taking out and taking away. Rescue also comes in gifts of presence, endurance, and purpose.
You didn’t see me. You didn’t heart me. And you didn’t feel me in your pain. But I was beside you, holding you close to my heart, loving you, and wiping away every tear. I came for you, and I have never left your side. –Your Loving Father
