HOLY COW i can’t believe I had a horrid day, and was in bed crying, somehow found my way to Hebrews… And felt the Holy Spirit’s sweet presence, felt my shame leave, and my very soul felt comforted by what I was reading…
I mean here I was feeling so down in the dumps, feeling like nothing will ever change, ashamed of how weak and wretched I am, then I’m lost and distracted for a few moments while reading these verses, and it’s like my mood was reset.
Oh my sweet Lord Jesus.
When all of a sudden I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory.
Oh my goodness, God.
The Bible works.
How many times must I relearn this simple truth, that the Bible works perfectly?!
The Lord did not abandon me, but was so quick to show me grace and love and peace.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:3-4)
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)
