This week was by far one of the toughest weeks we have had to face so far in ministry. We had a situation where we tried to help someone time and time again, but in the end, they went back to their old way of life. I had such hope that this person would come around and surrender their life completely over to the Lord, but that did not happen. I have never felt so helpless.
A wise friend told me that as hard as it is to be going through this, she often wonders if this is how God feels with us at times? Does He grieve for us when we keep going back to our old ways of living? Does His heart break when we turn our backs on Him time and time again? I think we all know the answer.
When we have these moments of hopelessness and feeling in the valley because we cannot help someone, we need to turn our eyes to Jesus and know that He has this world in His hands. Only God can mend this broken heart of mine and heal the souls of the lost. He is never too far. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep hoping.
It is a privilege to see through the eyes of Jesus, as hard as that may be.
