Suffering at Christmas

Merry Christmas to each of you! 

I pray this day finds you rejoicing and full of joy today!  However, I know that often Christmas can be so difficult.  I have been so burdened for so many folks who are suffering in one way or another this Christmas. it’s on every side. Pain, sickness, loss…so much hurting and suffering.  It may seem an awful time of year to be dealing with hard things, but as I shared on this past Saturday’s broadcast, suffering can help us realize why Christ came.  You can listen to the broadcast by clicking this link~

Suffering at Christmas

I hope this will encourage your heart today, whether it’s you that is suffering or someone you love.

Because He came,

  1. Thank you Denise. I sure needed to see this…we found out my husbands family (‘clan’ as we all it it) all met last night for Christmas Eve. Not a mention to us…just so sad…the ‘glue’ (my father in law) that kept the family together passed on nearly 30 years ago. I am afraid he wouldn’t be happy about all this.

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. smiles


    1. I’m so sorry, Linda. When I’m rejected I remind myself that ALL forsook Christ before He died. It’s hurtful, for sure, but because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we never have to endure these things alone. Praying for you now. 💕


  2. Oh yes, so much sadness. A friend whose baby had no heartbeat when she went in for a scheduled Csection just a couple weeks ago. Another family whose 12 year old daughter died when a tree limb fell on their car. We are desperate for the comfort and hope we have in the Lord.


    1. Oh my, such hard things. I’m so sorry! One Day all that suffering and death will be over! It will be worth it all when we see Jesus. Praying now for your friends’ losses!
