Blog to offer hope,comfort and encouragement to the hurting, ill, grieving  by Debbie Kay from Hope For The Broken Hearted.

Welcome To The New Blog

Hello, Friends!

I'd like to welcome you to my new blog.  I have multiple friends who will also be joining me here as contributing writers. It's our desire to offer hope and encouragement to hurting hearts. I still have my other blogs at Wordpress where you can receive my Daily Prayer, Note To Self: Daily Reminders For The Broken Hearted and Promises For The Broken Hearted

 

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Father who is full of mercy, the God of all comfort.  He comforts us every time we have trouble so that when others have trouble, we can comfort them with the same comfort God gives us.  We share in the many sufferings of Christ. In the same way, much comfort comes to us through Christ.-2 Cor 1:3-5

 It’s through adversity and the storms of life that we learn to trust in God and learn we can rely upon Him...we learn that His promises are true. The Bible says "Blessed  are those who mourn for they shall be comforted."   God is known as The God of All Comfort.  He comforts us in all of our troubles. We don't have to wonder where God is in the midst of our struggles. He is with us, comforting us and collecting our tears.  God wastes nothing in our lives friends. The knowledge and wisdom you have gained from what you have endured and survived will be used to offer hope, encouragement and comfort to someone  down the road. There is great comfort in finding someone who can relate to what you have experienced. C.S. Lewis once said, " Friendship is born at the moment when one man says to another, "What! you too? I thought that no one but myself..."  It is comforting to know we are not alone and we are understood.

My favorite scripture is Romans 8:28 ….it also ties in with this topic. “All things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose.”  I find part of  “the good”, that comes from my trials is to be able to help comfort others as they navigate down a hard road I've  already been on.

I had a  friend ask me, “what does that mean….that things work for good? How can good come out of bad?” I used the example of John Walsh.  John Walsh became a public figure  after his six-year-old son Adam, was kidnapped and murdered in 1981. Because  of what he had been through, Mr. Walsh successfully advocated Congress to create the Missing Children’s Act. He served on the board of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He also became the host of the show, America’s Most Wanted.  The show began profiling missing persons, especially children, in 1991. They had over 1,000 captures as a result of their show. This is an example of something good that has come out of a tragic situation. John Walsh did not want his son’s death to be in vain or for other parents to go through what he had endured. Because of his experience and tragic loss, he has helped countless families be reunited with their missing children. In addition, many criminals  have been brought to justice for their crimes.

When we go through a difficult situation, or experience a loss, it gives us compassion and empathy for others who are going through similar circumstances. We also learn from our own experience how to  pray for others and how to offer hope, encouragement and comfort because we know what comforted and helped us.

Is there some area in your life that has caused your heart to be broken? Is there some area where God can use that brokenness to help others? It actually can be quite healing for our own hearts to reach out to others in need...

Thank you Lord for wasting nothing in our lives. Thank you for working all things together for good for those who love you. Please lead us and guide us to someone who could use  some hope, encouragement and comfort today.

Blessings to you friends!
