Listening with Love

dogcathurting

So many hurting people, so much overwhelming sense of “what can I do?”  My heart has been aching for those people I will maybe never know who are hurting, right now, in some way that I don’t know.  I want to help.  I am praying, I am crying out to God to touch them in the way that only He can.  I am asking Him to help me not to judge, only to love.  Not to give hurting people clichéd, tired answers to their problems, but just to listen, to put a hand on theirs.  Because we all have been sad, we’ve all been hurt, we all need help.  If you’re hurting today, please know that even though I may not know you, I’m praying for you.  If you want to write, I’ll write back.  Love, Lisa

  “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a broken spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him from them all.” ~Psalm 34:18

“I have found the paradox,
that if you love until it hurts,
there can be no more hurt, only more love.”
~Mother Teresa

  1. May we all join you today in praying for all the hurting people in our world! I loved the quote by Mother Teresa! I’m reminded of the song; “What the world needs now is love, sweet love; Not just for some but for everyone.” Praying for you today, too, special lady!!
