... my voice is small on earth - yet heard with love in heaven ...

have you ever had times in your life when it seems that your voice is so small, no one hears it?  when you call the maytag repair guy and no one comes ... when your normally speedy internet, just churns and churns, and the provider doesn't care ... when a loved one is in pain, and you can't do anything to help? ...


i have had so many incidents this past while, that it has to be more than coincidence ... it seems i'm under attack ... every day, my "smallness" shouts - "you have no voice ... it doesn't matter, so don't even bother trying!!!" ....


but it does matter - because though i may be small - the God i serve ISN'T ... and it is His battle, not mine ... i just need to keep my eyes on Him who redeemed me ... keep praying and keep reading my bible - which tells me that i was so important to God that He sent His only Son to die for me ...


the maytag guy may not hear me ... but God does!  the internet may be slower than molasses on a january morning - but God isn't slow to encourage my heart ...


yup - i need my focus on things that matter ... things that are eternal ... because though my voice is small and muffled on earth - it is heard with love and concern in heaven ...

my morning view

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  ~ Jesus ... (Matthew 11:28-30)

Dear Saija, I understand
completely. I know what it
is like to see a loved one
suffer greatly on a daily
basis and feel helpless to
stop the pain. Your husband's
pain is physical, my son's is
mental, but suffering is still
suffering. BUT we have GOD!!
And yes, He does hear our words
and know our hearts and HE LOVES
US and our hurting loved ones!
Blessings,
Sandy

And He hears, and knows, and cares before we even speak!

Hi Saija, I sure can relate to how you're feeling. Sometimes it just seems like it's one thing after another, and you wonder what's next! But you are so right, our God hears, and he cares, and when we keep our eyes on him the trials of this life are so much easier to bear.
Keep looking up! And enjoy that beautiful view!

Dear Saija,
I agree, you are under attack, but the fight isn't yours.
The words from Isaiah 45 ave comforted me many a time, and also in retrospect proven to be true. I therefor share them with you, praying that you will find the promised treasures this very day. Isaiah 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the doors of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron; 3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I am the LORD, who call thee by thy name.
Hugs from Felisol
