Ever-Present Lord

Romans 8:18 – For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Revelation 21:4

 – And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Isaiah 41:10 

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My Righteousness

.Currently,  I know an individual who is really struggling, physically, emotionally and spiritually. (Inject prayer request, no name).  It seems that no matter what is said, there’s no comfort. This person claims to be a Believer in Jesus Christ, but the sad reality is, no matter what is said about His Presence and promise of peace, nothing seems to get through the agonizing  feelings of isolation and pain. 

Misery can be so isolating, it seems as though one is imprisoned by it, shackled by relentless hopelessness. But God’s perfect Word tells us that we are never alone, and where there is Christ, there is always hope.  Temptation will come, so will persecution and various trials.  Sometimes things come in “waves”.  The songwriter Spafford penned in his wonderful “It Is Well With My Soul”, ” When peace like a river, attendeth my way,When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul”

Other times it may seem as though the hard times just come throughout our lives, ebb and flow of living. For some, it may be more like waiting at a train stop and cars just keep passing, seeming to have no end.  From cradle to grave, all some ever realize is sadness, sorrow and suffering.

Keep your eyes on Jesus, now with a sound mind, and pray.  Jesus, while He was here on earth, stayed in constant communication with The Father, so how could we, being mere sinful mortals, think we should be different?  We have no power of our own to overcome grief, anxiety  or anything.  God hears the cries of His children.  Jesus sent us the Great Comforter Who lives in us, on mountains of triumph and in valleys of despair.

Let’s briefly discuss the mountain peaks.  It seems  some are always there and others have never quite reached that point.  One, no one is always “there”. No matter how many blissful social media posts, life is not “perfect”. Wealth or fame is not going to make life easier .  Sure, one may be able to buy something without a second thought, or they may have the adoration of many, but is that what you REALLY want?  

In all things give praise. The Lord wants a heart of joy, celebrating victories or in our darkest hours, knowing and believing that what we desire is for Him to be glorified. Our skills, talents, wealth, health, time and effort, with all we have and all He created us to be, to God be the glory!

Almighty Savior and King

Thank You for this day

Please forgive our sins against You, others and ourselves

Please accept all of the glory  we get from others

You and You Alone are worthy of such praise

Please make Yourself known in a  special way to those Who feel alone or disconnectedFor those who are at the mountain’s peak

Please let them acknowledge the Creator And give You the honor and recognition

 Only You rightly deserve

When we fal

lYou, our Loving FatherPicks us up again

You are our Faithful King!

In Jesus Name



About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
