Compassion!

“And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.”

(Luke 15:20)

How can you doubt His mercy and compassion for you?

“No matter how low down you are; no matter what your disposition has been; you may be low in your thoughts, words, and actions; you may be selfish; your heart may be overflowing with corruption and wickedness; yet Jesus will have compassion upon you.”

“He will speak comforting words to you; not treat you coldly or spurn you, as perhaps those of earth would, but will speak tender words, and words of love and affection and kindness. Just come at once. He is a faithful friend – a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

-D.L. Moody

With love from your prodigal brother,

Bryan

  1. Oh Bryan, I just can’t believe what I am just reading from your post.It came to me at the exact right time.
    I just finished praying to our Lord, and I often asked Him, how does He really but really personally see’s me.
    I am such a mess in my head.I have alot of trouble to find out if it is true what my mind is saying to me or not.
    I know that I am extremely hard with myself and living with this very strong guilt and shame,puts alot of doubt about me. It makes so long that it keeps on saying and a constant repeating in my mind that I am a mean person and that there is no more hope for me! (This is very strong in me) but I can’t get out of these. I was like this at 17 years old and things just got much worse theses passed years. Now I am 57 and still struggling so so so hard with my guilt. I know I was raised up felling guilty all the time and so often being afraid to be punished! Well its the same thing today.
    I do live with mental health and it is hard because there are many times that I can just say that everything is my fault. Even if my husband and a friend of mine keep telling me that I am sick,I still acuse myself and then I start cutting again and it keeps on repeating in my mind suicidal thoughts start haunting me.
    Well after all I said ( I guess I needed to talk this morning)
    Well like I said at the beginning, your post answered my prayer.The Lord guided you for me.Thank the Lord and thank you Bryan for listening to the Holy Spirit that guided you and this post you wrote will surely help others like me.
    Just yesterday and many other day’s,I just feel that my life is over and to end it.I struggle with this by times alot and theses last months the enemy wants that.
    Being afraid of God ( this goes with what I said earlier, being afraid to be punished, guilt) stops me and I think of my husband and children, that to stops me and I know that God does not want that!
    Bryan,you wrote about the compassion of the Lord!
    I must believe that He’s compassion is for me too and to stop seeing myself as a bad monster!
    Thank you!
