Secret Suffering

“I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out…and I am concerned about their suffering.” Exodus 3:7

He sees your secret sorrow. He can pinpoint the very vein and nerve that triggers your pain, no words required.  Hold on, Beloved, for that is what you are. You are the Beloved Craftsmanship of the Almighty. Allow Him to be your Source, for He has a never-ending supply of Love, Comfort, and Provision. Do not be dismayed by the trials you face that no one knows about. He is producing in you something deeper that can only come from a vessel that has been broken and is contrite. After all, a cracked and leaky vessel is better able to spill over with Life Giving Water and Radiant Son Light. Allow Him to refresh you so you can go out and refresh others.

Think on Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Mary gave birth to the First Member of the New Testament Church (though we know he was so much more). Healing literally poured forth from her womb. She endured trial, rejection, fear and ultimately became an outcast, all for the sake of Pure Love. What is it God would like to birth in you? He must flow His healing power to you so it can then be a conduit of Love, Virtue and Healing through you to others. You can only lead others as far as you have come yourself. If you have endured much, then be encouraged! He has much reward and responsibility awaiting you.

Embrace the call of your heart. Allow the Holy Spirit, the Wisest of Counselors, to influence you. It may be scary (human nature leaves us desiring to be in control), but God wants to take you where you have never been before. Be willing to follow His lead and receive your healing as He also brings forth a beauty in your brokenness. He will break our heart for what breaks His. Then, after His work is complete, he will use you as a sieve for healing in others who maybe do not possess the same courage and strength that you possess. You are a part of something so much bigger than yourself. Come Alive with Fire! God’s Love is like an inferno that will illuminate, captivate and ignite everything in its Path with a Blaze of Glory.

I have been pondering a song I learned in church when I was a child. I remember the words and they seem to be fitting right now. They go like this…

“It only takes a spark to get a fire going. Soon all of those around can warm up in it’s glowing. That’s how it is with God’s Love, once you experience it…you want to pass it on.”


He who has begun a good work in you is faithful to complete it. I know it hurts. I can feel your pain. Though our circumstance may not be the same, God has allowed me the deepest of sorrows so I can rise up and bring Comfort from the One who is Called Faithful and True. Allow me to cover you in prayer and be a source of comfort for you. Everything will be all right. It will work out in the end. It may not be as you expect it to be or when you expect it to end, but it will come to a close. For this I know, He will not exasperate his children. He may allow us to suffer for a time, but he will grant us relief.


“For I, ‘says the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire all around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.’” Zech 2:5
