‘The contrast of jewels against dark velvet brings out the luster. In the same way, God does his most stunning work where things seem hopeless. Wherever there is pain, suffering, and desperation, Jesus is. No situation, anywhere on Earth, is too hard for God.’
I hope this encourages you if you’re going through a tough time right now.
Just remember, when things are looking down for you, look up! He’s there and always will be.
‘Even though I don’t know what your plan is, I know you make beauty from these ashes.
I’ve seen joy and I’ve seen pain. On my knees, I call Your name. Here’s my broken Hallelujah.
Nothing left to hold onto. I raise these empty hands to You. Here’s my broken Hallelujah.’
‘Jesus paid a high price so that we wouldn’t have to live lives full of pain and self-pity.’

If you’re fighting frustration right now, or feeling down in the dumps, or if you’re mad about something, or whatever it might be…take a half hour and watch the video. The points that are made in it can help anyone both short-term and long-term and I promise it will be worth your time – even if your response to me writing this is, ‘You don’t know what I’m going through.’ 🙂
Have a great day everyone.
You died so I could live. Nothing I can say here will ever be enough so I will just say thank you, Jesus. Thank you so much.
3 He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
