Here is what I wrote today -- if you are hurting or broken-hearted today, I think it will help for you to read it and understand just how much Jesus loves you and cares about what you are going through and that even in your broken-heartedness, He (Lord Jesus) still has amazing and beautiful plans for your life. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE
JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH!!!
If you are hurting or broken-hearted right now, I am here today to let you know that you have a Lord and Savior and Best Friend in Jesus who cares about everything that you are going through and carries you in His mighty, strong and everlasting arms whenever you are suffering. I want you know that you are never alone when are hurting and broken-hearted because Jesus is always with you and caring for you and loving you even when the people in your life let you down. When God Our Almighty Heavenly Father sent Jesus to the earth as a tender, newborn baby in a manger in Bethlehem two thousand years ago that was the beginning of a new era of grace, compassion and love for God's children, including you, because God Our Almighty Heavenly Father sent Jesus --His Only Begotten Son Conceived through the Holy Spirit -- to both carry the burden of our sins to the cross, so that we would receive permanent forgiveness and grace for those sins through our faith in Jesus as our Savior and to carry us through our difficulties, hurt and broken-heartedness, as our loving and compassionate Lord who cares immensely for each precious child of God, including you, on this planet. Even when we are adults, we remain precious and deeply loved children of Our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus. When I was in Sunday School as a child, we sang a song that went like this: Jesus loves the little children of the world, red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world. And I am here today to tell you that not only does Jesus love the little children of the world, He loves you, too, and you, too, even as an adult are precious in His sight and deeply loved and cared for by Lord Jesus. And when you suffer and are broken-hearted, Jesus suffers with you, just like He did on the cross two thousand years ago, and Jesus feels your pain and wants you to reach out to him, with faith and in prayer, in Jesus' Name, and talk to Him about what you are going through because Jesus is the best friend you will ever have and Jesus wants to carry your burdens for you -- cast all you cares upon Lord Jesus because He cares for you and is more than mighty enough to carry those burdens in his everlasting, loving and compassionate arms. This is why God Our Almighty Heavenly Father sent Jesus to this earth -- to be with us and carry us and our broken-heartedness and our mistakes in His mighty, compassionate arms and to offer us forgiveness, salvation and redemption by dying for us on the cross two thousand years ago because Jesus and Our Heavenly Father loves us so much and so passionately that They want us, through our faith in Jesus, to spend eternity with Them in Heaven. For God so passionately loved the world, He gave His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that whomsoever believes him Him, shall not perish but have eternal life in Heaven. This is the great truth of the Gospels and these are the reasons that God Our Almighty Heavenly Father sent Jesus to earth. Jesus knows what it feels like to suffer because Jesus suffered on the days leading up to the cross and on the cross, when He died for our sins, and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father made Jesus more than strong and mighty enough to endure and overcome that suffering, just like Jesus is strong enough to overcome your suffering for you and heal you and your broken-heartedness and the people around you. For, you see, Jesus is our Great Healer, and when you put your faith and trust in Jesus, as Your Lord and Savior, He begins to heal you, through His Amazing Love and Grace, and heal your broken heart. Faith in Jesus, as our Lord and Savior, is the most beautiful, redeeming, healing and restorative thing in the world. Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father offer us amazing grace, forgiveness and healing through our faith in Jesus' great, loving and awe-inspiring sacrifice of His life on the cross and His presence in our lives as our Lord and Best Friend. There is another song about Jesus that my mom sang to me when I was growing up and it goes like this: And He (Jesus) walks with me and He (Jesus) talks with me and He (Jesus) tells me that I am His Own (Jesus' Precious Child) and the Love I feel when He (Jesus) is near, none other have I ever known. And I am here today to share with you that Jesus walks with you, too, as His precious child, and Jesus want to talk with you through prayer, in Jesus' name, and Jesus calls you as His (Jesus') own because He (Jesus) loves you far, far more than anyone in your life ever will -- Jesus' love for you is the greatest love you will ever experience. You experience and feel that amazing and unconditional love through your faith in Jesus as your Lord and Savior and Best Friend. Through prayer to Jesus and Our Almighty Heavenly Father, you begin to grow your relationship with Jesus and experience His (Jesus') presence in your life and grow your faith in Jesus' great love and compassion for you and Jesus begins to grow you in your love and compassion and forgiveness for the people around you and that you encounter as part of your daily living. For Jesus loves and cares for us so much that Jesus wants to heal and restore our relationships with the people around us and the people that we love -- our loved ones -- and that restoration begins by offering love and grace and compassion to our loved ones and the people we encounter daily and that is why Jesus, when He walked the earth, gave the great commandment that we love one another like Jesus loves us and that we care for one another like Jesus cares for us. Because it is through our faith in Jesus and our love and compassion for one another that we begin to heal and the world around us begins to heal. Jesus' amazing grace on the cross and His compassionate and loving presence in our lives is the most healing and restorative thing and Lord Jesus wants us, as His and Our Heavenly Father's precious children, to also offer grace and forgiveness and compassion and love to the world around us, especially the most hurting and broken-hearted people that we encounter. Jesu and Our Heavenly Father want us to be ministers of Jesus' amazing love and grace to these people, also precious children of God Our Almighty Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus, and we become those ministers by being present in one another's life and forgiving one another and offering love and compassion to one another, especially when we are suffering, because this is what Lord Jesus wants and compassionately and lovingly will for us to be doing for one another, so that we and the world around us can be healed and restored, through both our faith in Jesus, as our Lord, Savior and Best Friend and love and compassion and forgiveness for one another, as God's precious children. Ministering to one another like Jesus' ministers to us is the greatest, most loving and caring thing that we can do with our lives and for one another, and it is what Lord Jesus and Our Heavenly Father value the most and compassionately and lovingly will that we do for one another. Jesus and Our Heavenly Father want us to see one another as Their precious and deeply loved children who deserve love, care and compassion from one another, just like Jesus loves and cares for us when we are hurting and broken-hearted and suffering. God Our Almighty Heavenly Father wants us to become more and more like Jesus and live our lives like Jesus did when He walked the earth, ministering to and serving the people around us with the greatest of love, compassion and grace. And God Our Almighty Heavenly Father wants us to lovingly and compassionately sacrifice our lives in ways similar to how Jesus lovingly and compassionately sacrificed His life on the cross for us -- because love is sacrifice for Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father and to sacrifice your life for another person, a precious child of Our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus, is the most loving and compassionate thing you can do. Many parents make such loving sacrifices for their children and many people in the service professions make such loving sacrifices for the people they serve. We have each been given a unique and special set of gifts and blessings that we can use to minister to one another and serve one another and sacrifice for one another, and Lord Jesus wants us to compassionately and lovingly use those gifts and blessings to spread His (Jesus') amazing love and grace for the world, especially those people who are most hurting and broken-hearted and needing love, healing, grace and salvation and needing to know about Jesus' everlasting and loving presence in their lives and grow in their faith in Jesus, as their Lord, Savior and Best Friend. I am here today to help you grow in your faith in Lord Jesus and His great and amazing love and forgiveness for you and in the knowledge and understanding of Jesus and Our Heavenly Father's compassionate and loving will for your life as a minister of Their Amazing Love, Grace and Compassion to the world around you. IN JESUS' LOVING, HOLY, BEAUTIFUL, GLORIOUS, GRACIOUS AND MOST OF ALL COMPASSIONATE NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE
