WE DONíT UNDERSTAND
"For the mountains shall depart,
and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee,
neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that
hath mercy on thee."
I saw on television today, scene after scene of the anguish, horror, and
devastation of the hurricane hit areas. After fifty minutes, I had
to turn the television off as my heart was breaking and I just could not
watch the pain on their faces another minute. I called my sister
because I wanted to hear her voice. I love my sister very, very
much. She was not in the area that was hit by the hurricane, but she
could have been.
Jesus can not get up and turn His television off when the pain is
unbearable. He has said that He will never leave us or forsake us.
My heart was broken this afternoon as I watched those dear people, but
that is nothing compared to the agony that Jesus suffered on the Cross for
us. Sad to say, even today He is suffering agony because of us.
He has given us the Answer for every trial, every heartache, and every
situation we face so that we can have His Peace while we are on earth.
Yet, many times we ignore Him and all He has done for us and His Heart
breaks once again. I pray that all of us will stop breaking the
Heart of Jesus. We need to do things that will bring Joy to His
Heart instead of pain.
