When We Are Hurting

rainbow-lorikeet

I had an appointment at the Doctors yesterday Morning and had only a few minutes to spare but as I rounded a bend on my Mobility Scooter, I saw this colorful little Rainbow Lorikeet Parrot trying to fly but it’s wing was damaged and he could only just hop.

I held my breath  as a Truck pulled into the side of the road just inches from the hurt Parrot, the Truck Driver seemed to be in a hurry and just nodded and went on his way when I told him about the hurt bird. I tried a few times to catch the Parrot thinking I could take him to a Vet but he hoped out of reach each time, no doubt thinking I was going to hurt him more. I prayed he would be rescued knowing God even cares about the Sparrows, than running late now for my Doctor’s appointment I went on my way.

As I was driving along the road thinking about the hurt Parrot, I wondered how many people when they are hurting are afraid to Trust God, believing that it was Him who afflicted them or willingly allowed it to happen, perhaps to teach them or mold them into a fit Vessel, this deception is not confirmed in the Scriptures, the opposite is True, as we can see below and in other Scriptures, all good things come from God not evil, He hates Satan’s tools that are used for suffering and hardship and does not afflict His Children but those who reject Him and live in Sin will suffer the curse, this is their choice not God’s, He does not want anybody to perish meaning to be Eternally Separated from Him.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

When you truly Love someone you want the best for them and will even sacrifice your own wants to please them. God still provides even for those who hurt Him by their indifference and Sin. He Loved the  World this means everyone in it and so He sent Jesus to redeem those who would accept His free gift of Salvation.

Psalm 145:8-10 The Lord is Gracious and full of Compassion slow to anger and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all and His Tender Mercies are over all His works. All thy works shall Praise Thee, O Lord and Thy Saints shall Bless Thee.

God is Love and can be no other way, what He hates is Sin because it separates us from Him and we cannot be in close fellowship, good and evil cannot be in Unity but He does not stop Loving us and will seek to rescue us and as we come to our senses and repent He will welcome us Home because He has known us from Eternity as His own. He molds us by giving us opportunities to choose to walk in the Fruit of The Spirit and empowers us so we can, this puts our Carnal flesh to death and also Stores up Treasure in Heaven as we Aim to be Perfected in Love.

Psalm 145 14-21 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee and thou givest them their meat in due season.Thou openest thine hand and satisfies the desire of every living thing. The Lord is Righteous in all His ways, and Holy in all His works. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in Truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him He also will hear their cry and will save them.

Those who sow in evil will reap evil this is God’s Discipline, when we continue to Sin we separate ourselves from God but He will chastise His own through the Body of Christ and we will be rebuked and warned and than if like the Prodigal Son we come to our senses and repent and turn from evil, Wow what a Welcome Home!

Psalm 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness neither shall evil dwell with thee.

We live in a fallen World controlled by Satan, who temps us to do evil, accidents happen, sickness and Death are a reality and others in the flesh hurt us but we don’t walk alone. When we are suffering our Abba Father gives us His Strength to endure and the Help we need, He Loves us greatly, we never have to doubt that we are Precious to Him and that His Plans for us are very good not evil.

James 1:12-14 Blessed is the man that endureth Temptation for when he is tried he shall receive the Crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that Love Him. Let no Man say when he is Tempted I am Tempted of God, for God cannot be tempted with evil neither tempteth He any Man But every Man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed.

1 John 5:18-20 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the Evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is True and we are in Him who is True, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and Eternal life.

If God was to stop all evil now, many would be lost but He is patient giving us time, He does not willingly allow evil, He tolerates it, it’s not His will anyone perishes but we can be assured not one of us, who He has known from Eternity and who are Adopted by Him, will be lost , He protects our Soul and is always with us giving us strength to endure whatever hardship life brings, including the fire of Satan’s trials .

Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel your Saviour.”

    I have been thinking about birds lately too! (Well, to be more specific, God’s hand on creation.) I have seen a lone female hummingbird at my feeder through most of October. The last sighting was October 23. I believe that her wing is injured and that is why she didn’t traveled south in September. Like you, I want to reach out and do something to help this bird.

    I am thankful that God is in control, because it is obvious I am not. I am thankful that our Father in heaven is the author of compassion and grace for all of His creation. I am thankful that God’s victory is one of heaven in eternity with no sin, pain, torn ligaments, death, or anything else to hold us back from realizing God’s promises for us!

    Blessings, Dear Anne!

    • I think I saw the same Parrot a few days later on the overhead electricity lines but I’m not sure although there was no sign that he met a bad end, perhaps I will never know.

      Yes I agree Debbie that God controls all that is good in our World and I’m sure you will also agree that God does not use evil , or suffering to achieve His Purposes but yes He can bring good out of all things for us who Love Him.

      An example of how some get it all mixed up, I was at a Bible Study with Ron and the Woman leading said God controls everything good and bad, it all comes from Him, they are in His plans for us.

      I asked her did God plan and willingly allow me to be bashed much more than once by my Alcoholic Birth Mother, to be Molested 5 times from the age of 3 and to be raped by the Doctor who aborted my Baby when I was not yet 15, to also be bashed as a young wife repeatedly even during my pregnancies and to loose 6 more babies.

      She said yes to bring good out of it, which the Scriptures tell us to say this even about Believers is slander how much more so to say it about God. We walked out amazed that her understanding of our God of Love was so lacking and yet she was teaching others.

        Annie, I am so sorry for that experience. How can we reconcile a God of love that would CAUSE evil in our lives? We can’t. I do believe that God can use evil for good in our lives. Genesis 50:20 is confirmation of that principle. “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Thank God that when sifted through His hands, even evil has to submit to His goodness! Hugs to you Dear Anne!

    He protects our soul, so important. Your words were so uplifting and gentle describing your journey. Amazing grace is the perfect song. The scriptures fit so well into your journey. I bought myself some little Zebra finches to care for and give a home. They looked so lonely in the shop. God drew me to them my heart is still sad for Tibby.

    • Thank you again Sheri, for your encouragement, Compassion and Prayers, I have been in, intense pain most of the week but Thankfully God’s Balm helps greatly, they did tell me when they injected the Steroid that when the Anesthetic wore off that I would be in pain but that it would settle down again.

      The Doctor also told me that my torn ligament is very prominent and will not heal by itself but I’m still waiting to hear from the Hospital about the Operation although with my being bulk billed it may be quiet awhile before I do but the Doctor said they will continue the Steroid injections for the pain until I’m operated on.

        • Hi Sheri, I always view the “Like” as if someone has read my Message or Comment , hopefully they liked it if was uplifting but I’m pleased you didn’t like that I was in pain or had to wait for the Operation. I waited well over a year to see a Specialist about my feet, I didn’t end up having the Operation because it presented too much danger, if I got an infection they would have cut them off as I have very little circulation so the Antibiotics would not have helped.

          Thank you again for Caring Sheri, I’m very Blessed having you as a Blogging friend, I just wish we could share a Cuppa together, it would rate a BIG LIKE from me.

          Blessings – Anne.

          • Anne – I understand what you mean about the ‘likes.’ I hope followers actually read and then the skeptic in me sometimes wonders if that’s true. I’m working on a blog to address new bloggers that elect to follow me but don’t bother to leave a like or a comment. I consider blogging a two way passage into remarkable friendships and journeys through life. I’m not about the numbers. I hope I don’t make anyone happy but life is just to short to simply say how many followers you have.
            I don’t blame you for not having the operation on your feet. I turned down my last opportunity of foot surgery. Each time they cut on my feet it only makes it worse so I’ve called a halt to that nonsense. Don’t give up on sharing that Cuppa together. I hope to be able to travel one of these days. I’m not predicting a specific date but Australia is definitely on my list. Tom has always wanted to visit Australia. He’s getting a little stronger each day!!! With love and prayers, my friend. Know you are in my prayers.

        • I was wondering Sheri what you do to relax, looking after Tom must be draining at times, do you have help so you can have a break if needed?

    • Yes I too Sheri consider Blogging as a Conversation to make friends, a two way Street not a dead end but for sure others have not felt the same even those who put likes and comment but those who do comment always have Priority, if they take the time to share, which I value greatly, so do I on their Blogs, I still comment on Blogs of those who don’t but it depends how God leads me, right now though I’m still trying to catch up.

      Foot Surgery Can be dangerous Sheri and very painful too as many have found out especially the aged.

      You are always welcome Sheri to share a Cuppa with me in Aussie Land and to stay for a Holiday too, How good that would be!

      Blessings – Anne.

      • If Tom continues to improve at the rate he is, I should be able to get away for awhile – maybe even next year. I expect he’ll always have to have someone around the house but hopefully not the level that’s kept be so close to home. I’ve missed being out and about.

        • As I have shared before Sheri you are an amazing woman, your Love for Tom is so Sacrificial, I hear of Woman getting a Carer instead of Caring.

          Hopefully I will be moving soon, the house is up for sale but than it has been for some time so I’m not sure where I will be but let me know when your coming to Aussie Land and you will be welcome as a guest wherever I am for as long or as short as you want to visit.

          Blessings – Anne.

          • Anne – I like to think of my love for Tom as being one of unconditional love. My wedding vows were clear, “in sickness and health.” Tom and I decided we didn’t want to go with the trend of writing out own vows. We wanted to stand before God and use the traditional vows used for centuries before us. I also had the career working 80 hours a week but I never once forgot what and who my number 1 priority was.
            It will be a good year before I can travel and perhaps longer but I told a dear friend last night that I had plans to visit Austrailia and that I knew a dear Christian lady there! How’s that for special. Continue to improve dear Anne and know you are in my thoughts and prayers. With love, Sheri

    I feel like I’ve been to church. You explained this so well and fully. Great post!

    • Thank you Joanna for your encouragement, although I don’t seek to Preach in Authority, I do Love to share God’s Truth. Jesus of course is our only Teacher and I think it’s so wonderful when Christians Trust Him to lead them into all Truth. I seek His confirmation on everything that others Share with Blogging and also in Church and on the Internet too. I’m like the Bereans Acts 17:10-11 but yes I’m still learning although I know what Jesus has already confirmed with me through Scripture and in His Creation is very True.

      I had you next on my list Joanna and was coming to visit you today, I was hoping to catch up with some of your Posts that I have missed, I’m pleased you called by, you are indeed an encouragement and very Loving in your focus.

      I’m still behind in Blogging but hopefully by the end of next week I will have responded to most of those whom I follow and who follow me and comment and also to my new followers. See you soon.

      Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
