World of Pain and Hurt and Sorrow

Isaiah 54:6 KJVS

For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

Isaiah 54:7-8 KJVS
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

[8] In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.

I understand the context is concerning Israel.   I also believe that if you are a child of God’s that we can also embrace this.  We will all go through good times and not so good times.  The word moment is what I want to focus on here.  Truth is that our lives are full of brief moments.   Even months or years (sometimes just hours or days feel like too much), but regardless of the span of time you seem to be suffering,  it IS but a MOMENT in all of eternity.   God is with us and will always sustain you in those moments,  brief or long.  He is there.   Lean on Him. Cry out to Him. Draw close to Him. It is ALWAYS in these moments, long or short that I grow the most. BUT I only experience the growth when I lean into my redeemer, my salvation, my ONLY hope. He always brings me through stronger and yet softer. A little more humble. He and He alone gives me peace. Remember, His peace is not the peace the world gives but it is a peace that can only come from Jesus Christ. A peace between God and man and not a peace between man and this world.
