Seasonal Sorrows and Hope for Next Year.

New Hampshire

For those who often struggle during each holiday season… Especially those who have lived through abuse or trauma, are bereaved, alone, lonely, diseased, disabled, shut in at home, or psychiatric hospitals, or misunderstood, lied about or rejected … even by family or churches. ”No one came to my defense, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them.” 2 Timothy 4:16. Take heart that when everyone meets God face to face, they will finally discover the truth, even though it’s too late. ”For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17.

Polls show that many folks watch It’s A Wonderful Life, the 1946 classic movie, every Christmas!

‘The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched, and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born.’ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It%27s_a_Wonderful_Life

Seventy years later and the film still resonates with many. Perhaps especially those of us who have been suicidal or have lost a loved one through suicide. I think of my own mother especially at this time of year. She killed herself and I do wonder how many people she would’ve helped, had she lived. As I’m convinced she’d have shared her story worldwide through tv, magazines, etc, just as I have done … and through God’s grace alone, helped countless people to find salvation in Christ just as they were about to take their lives…helped them get freed after they’d been relentlessly tormented by evil spirits… helped them find purpose and meaning in life again through their new, or renewed faith in Jesus.

My mother lost her life to suicide. I’m so grateful to the Lord that the suicide attempts of mine and so many others failed.

Please let’s remember to pray and reach out to others. And for those of us in ministry too. We all need each other! 1 Corinthians 12:12-26. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+12%3A12-26&version=NKJV

If you are suicidal, alone and lonely, even alone and lonely within your ministry…God knows…

Let us praise God that we are still standing! Let us look to Jesus for the new year and let Him alone be our anchor and our hope!

God Only Knows – For King And Country.

God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows how it’s killing you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love

Wide awake while the world is sound asleepin’
Too afraid of what might show up while you’re dreamin’
Nobody, nobody, nobody sees you
Nobody, nobody, nobody would believe you
Every day you try to pick up all the pieces
All the memories, they somehow never leave you
Nobody, nobody, nobody sees you
Nobody, nobody, nobody would believe you

You keep a cover over every single secret
So afraid if someone saw them they would leave
But somebody, somebody, somebody sees you
Somebody, somebody will never leave you.

God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows how it’s killing you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love.

For the lonely, for the ashamed
The misunderstood, and the ones to blame
What if we could start over
We could start over
We could start over
Oh for the lonely, for the ashamed
The misunderstood, and the ones to blame
What if we could start over
We could start over
We could start over.

‘Cause there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows the real you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows the real you.

There’s a kind of love that God only knows
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love
God only knows where to find you
God only knows how to break through
God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows
