By Evangelist Barbara Lynch
If only My people could believe. Little ones, I know the road has been rocky and very rough, but I was holding your hand every step of the way. I held you in My arms as you sat and wept, because you could not understand My ways. I was by your side as you silently watch life slip away from a loved one, and you watched as the enemy took your loved ones down paths that you knew would cause them heartache and tears.
I know the pain little ones, because I shared that pain with you. I know of all the trauma, the anguish and despair as you watched your loved ones slip into the abyss of uncertainty and hopelessness. I was with you little ones, and I am still with you this second. Keep holding on, for as My servant Paul said: It is worth it all.
Philippians 3:8-11 (MSG)
8 Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung. I’ve dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ
9 and be embraced by him. I didn’t want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ—God’s righteousness.
10 I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself.
11 If there was any way to get in on the resurrection from the dead, I wanted to do it.
