This Is Hard, Lord!


“This is hard, Lord,” I spoke in my heart to Him.

“Yes, it is,” the Lord replied to my heart. “But I am with you even until the end of time.”

I will spare you the details. Suffice it to say being on the road full-time for over 5 years for the Lord and ministry with my special needs ministry dogs especially given the state of this world and given what I see, hear, witness, and experience in my interactions with a broken world in dire need of the Lord Jesus Christ comes with its challenges – and exhaustion. And sometimes I feel so very overwhelmed by it all. I have learned to turn to the Lord – with everything. My heart, my thoughts, my feelings included.

He told me exactly what I needed to hear. Perhaps what you need to hear also.

No matter your trials, no matter your circumstances, no matter this world, when you turn from a lifestyle of sin to Jesus Christ as Lord, believing in Him and in His death and resurrection, committing your life to God and His ways, you are forgiven, promised a forever relationship with God, and the Holy Spirit comes to live inside you.

Your relationship with the Lord doesn’t begin in heaven. It is right here, right now. And no matter what you face in life, you as Christ’s follower can rest assured God is with you through it all. To love you, help you, support you, comfort you, counsel you, forgive you, teach you, grow you, purify you, cleanse you, transform you, to be your Lord, God, Savior, healer, redeemer, friend, to give you wisdom and direction, to guide you, to be your best friend, to lead you, to use you to help others, to be with you now and for always, for you to enjoy intimate fellowship with Him now and forevermore! As you live to love, praise, honor, serve, obey, worship, and glorify Him forevermore!

Take comfort, my friend. You who believe in and live for the Lord Jesus Christ, He is with you now and forever and ever, AMEN! And what is or seems to be too hard for us – it is not too hard for the Lord!

p.s. A day or so after writing this message, I felt totally overwhelmed again. The Lord dealt with my swiftly.

“Is anything too hard for me?” the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is too hard for the Lord who is with His children, His followers, always!

Please be encouraged reading the following verses! I know I am!

“”Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27

“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV
