Ministering to the Hurting

Someone dear and precious to my husband and I is going through a difficult time right now(none of the situation is of their own making). My husband said to me this morning I am going to send them a text today that says Numbers 6:24-26. I am ashamed to say that I had to ask him what it said. He told me what it said and I also looked it up for myself. He did text this individual this scripture along with that this was what he was praying for them today.

After reading it, and pondering on it all day I have decided that this is scripture worth remembering when there are no words to be said to those that are going through difficult situations of any kind.(After all what better is there to quote or say than God's words). I am afraid sometimes we say nothing, or we say way to much. Sometimes we say all the wrong things and say way to much, but most people don't know what to say and wind up and saying nothing. When we say nothing people feel as if noone cares about them. People are hurting all over the world, just look around and you can find many to care about and minister too.

I ran across a statement when Nikki first learned of Joahnna's diagnosis that said simply "God is Faithful" and I have learned to use it a lot for others in any situation because God is faithful.

But, after today I will also tell others that I am praying numbers 6:24-26 for them.

Numbers 6:24-26
The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

So this is what I am praying for, for all of you that are reading this today.
