I just want to post this amazing song sung by Kirk Franklin and a whole bunch of other gospel singers called My World Needs You. Although this song was dedicated to Deon Kipping who is a fellow gospel artist that has been diagnosed with cancer, I feel like this song can minister to anybody facing a trial whether it be medical, financial or a familial trial. The world needs to know that you really can’t live life without Jesus being a part of it. My Pastor friend always used to say to me that “a life without Christ is a Crisis”. I agree with his statement. Having been sick myself, I know that the most important relationship that I have keeping my mind together is the one I have with the Lord.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
People may fail you but God will never abandon you. It is so important to be anchored to Christ in all that you do because He is the One that Saves. So today, be thankful for God’s saving grace in your life. Some people are battling something for their lives and may feel discouraged; however, God has put us here to be able to lift someone up when they’re down, to encourage one another to stay strong when someone is feeling weak, to be the ears to listen to someone’s broken heart and to be the shoulder to cry on when things are just tough. We can minister to people effectively when we are moved by the spirit of Compassion. So for today, learn to be the Hands and Feet of God going about doing good and extending yourselves to others that need a touch of God’s love and encouragement for today. I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
Comfort in Suffering
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.
