Tenderhearted

by Angela Forker

You know when you’re struggling with something, and then God takes you to that very verse that you needed? That’s what God did to me today.

I’ve been struggling with a new situation that has come up. Struggling with anxious thoughts and fearful for the people that I love. I’m dealing with feelings of anger for how things are being done. I try to forgive and then when I think about it my heart fills with fear and anger once again.

And then when I wake up this morning, God leads me to this verse. I would normally just read and go on. Maybe I would pray over the verse. But this morning I lingered over this one verse. And I prayed and I prayed and I prayed. And as I prayed, my heart has been changed. It doesn’t mean I won’t still struggle over this situation, but it does mean that God will help me with it, as I look to Him.

God is so good. He knows just what we need. And He leads us through His Word. He gives us the strength that we need to love and to forgive, and He gives us the faith that we need to make it through whatever we are going through.

Praying today that God will help me to be kind and compassionate… and that He will help me to forgive and love.

(Just want to clarify that this has nothing to do with my marriage or any of our girls or their families. Don’t want people to worry.)

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32 NIV
