      I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

      This is the right weblog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You realize a lot its almost arduous to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply great!

      Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

What can you say to someone who is hurting?

I’ve been on the radio a lot recently and one of the questions that came directly in the wake of the horrific bombing near the finish of the Boston Marathon is this: “What do you say to a person who is right in the middle of it, someone who was wounded, someone who witnessed the carnage or even lost someone in the bombing?” It’s a tough question, but most honest questions are, aren’t they?

We have all cringed when we hear someone—someone perhaps too quick to answer—quote Romans 8:28, “…all things work together for good…” but I find it’s very seldom that those are the words people need at that moment. You know what I believe most people need? I believe they need to know that God cares.

In the midst of pain, their own or their friends, people just want to know that God cares. In those moments of vulnerability, our enemy whispers lies in our ears, lies we wouldn’t listen to for a moment if we weren’t hurting so bad. He whispers, “God doesn’t see you, God doesn’t care, God…” And in the midst of his lies, we need hope.  Psalms 56:8 offers that hope:

PS 56: 8       You keep track of all my sorrows

                    You have collected all my tears in your bottle

                    You have recorded each one in your book

God keeps track of all of my sorrows?

He collects all of my tears in a bottle?

He writes them down in His book?

Why does God write it down—do you think He’s going to forget? I think it just might be so that someday He can tell us about it.

I believe that one day God will open the bottle of our tears and show us how He was walking through our sorrow with us.

Job says that there is courage that comes from hope and that’s what this little verse points to: hope.

  1. I have found sometimes you don’t have to say anything, just be present.

  2. Tout le monde le sait, choisir un bon salon de coiffure à valenciennes n’est pas simple. Et pourtant, ce n’est pas impossible. Elit-coiffure est le coiffeur visagiste valenciennes qu’il vous faut.
