Tuesday September 13th: Lawd put ah hand!

“God has come to help his people.”

Luke 7: 11-17

My mother used to say, “Lawd put ah hand, and if you can’t put a hand, put ah foot and if yuh cyar put a foot then come yuhself!” Usually, her cry of despair was when she reached her wits end with us when we were children.
You ever reached rock bottom? Well, I have! So, I emphatized with this woman having lost her husband and now her son. When I am at rock bottom I don’t feel as if I can pray and sometimes, I feel like God does not care; but in this woman’s moment of despair, Jesus felt her pain and brought her son back to life.
I have been to the brink…. I have had moments when the pain was most unbearable and I can tell you that just as he did for this woman, he does it for all of us today. He hears the cries of heart and the desolation in our souls, and he does bring joy back into our lives. Just trust and believe.
