Job 4:3-4 ” Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees.”

Broken bodies & broken hearts. You may have friends & family going through very difficult times right now, I know I do. You may also feel, as I, at a loss for what I can do. Encouraging those that are fatigued from major surgery, fearful of impending pathology reports, or coping with profound sorrow don’t need our unsolicited advice, war stories about our own surgeries, or raucous pep talks. What they need is for us to provide words of true comfort…compassion in their vulnerable state…and proclaiming God’s Word in the midst of their turmoil. Yes, progress may be slow & unpredictable…but each step forward is a victory however small. And as we continue to encourage, assist, uphold, and pray for…we know the Great Physician, who knit us together in the womb, will take the unraveled threads of their life and piece them lovingly back together… rebuilding mind, body, and spirit.
