Subject: Pray for the hurting
Susan my heart is heavy this morning. Please send this to our church family.
I want to start off by telling you there will be grammatical errors but here my heart. I woke up this morning around 6:00 and received a text. It was a friend I hadn’t talked to in a while. She proceeded to tell me she is having thoughts of ending her life. I told to seek help and that I love her and I don’t judge if she needs someone to talk to.
Earlier this weekend I had another friend tell me that he is all alone and nobody cares and doesn’t know what or where to go or do. Why you ask am I saying this well... I believe that God put each of us on this journey to be a ear, a open heart ,or arms to wrap the hurting. We need to pray for the people that receive this news and have the right words to help them and get them the professional guidance. Love God and love neighbor. We don’t have to agree but we can Christ’s example. Loving the outcasts and being there for them. I love you so much Hollydale and grateful for each of you. God is good and near to the broken hearted.
Thanks for letting me share my heart!!
Help someone and tell them that you genuinely love them.
