Even in the darkness...





I do not know all of you, and I have no special knowledge of your life circumstances, but this little message has been sitting on my heart all afternoon.

Sweet friends, I shall be praying for you in the next few days, praying that you hold tightly to the only Hand which will lead you through the darkness and never, ever, let you go. 

So often it is we who let go, and if that's what you have done, do not fear...reach out and you will find the Father's hand waiting to grasp your own, His heart turned towards you, and His strength able to carry you through.

Some valleys are shallow and some are deep; some are short and others long. Whatever valley your weary feet are treading along right now, you are not alone...you are never alone when you call on Jesus.

Your praying friend,

  7. Your message at this time amazed me, although I know that God does many amazing things, so why am I surprised. My husband completed the final leg of his earthly journey and returned to his eternal home this past Tuesday. Thank you. A reminder that we may not know for whom or why we lift our prayers, but God does.

  11. Thank you Jennifer that's a beautiful message of hope for people.

    Amazing that you are saying exactly what aa priest said to me today that when you are sitting in the darkness and think you're alone, you aren't. Jesus is there sitting quietly with you.

    Hope you are keeping well and Blossom is recovering.

    God bless xxx

  13. Thank you, Jennifer. My valley had a rocky bottom, but He was there all the way, and you and your prayers were, too. I appreciate that and love you. I'm pretty sure I'm approaching a nice meadow, but if I'm wrong, it's okay. He'll still be there and so will you.

  14. Thank you so much, dear Jennifer! So timely and so, so appreciated. We all need that nudge, especially in dark or stressful times, that God has never left us! He is always there, ready and willing to take our burdens and cares. Bless you, dear sister.

  18. Thank you so much for your encouraging words! My family has been going through some really hard times this past year. Hubby diagnosed with Parkinsons disease, daughter passed away in March, youngest GS diagnosed with leukemia at only 18 months old, thats just part of it. With everything going on I feel empty and at times confused. I look forward to your posts because they always lift me up. Thank you!

  23. Jennifer...your words are balm to my spirit and soul. I am in another season of having to learn to rest and trust...my body is suffering, yet I know that Jesus has a purpose for this season of my life. Thank you for listening to the Lord and encouraging each of us!

  24. Thank you for that reminder! I am definitely walking in a valley right now, but I know He is with me. It was wonderful to be drawn to your newsletter today and see this. Many blessings to you!!!

  25. So true! I just finished studying the book of Job. It is so easy to see God working in your life when things are going well, but how quickly we feel abandoned during the hard times. Thank you, Jenny, for allowing God to use you to speak to His people through your talents and your words. You inspire me so much!

  27. I wanted to let you know you are a blessing to me this week! 4 years ago on Aug 9, I was diagnosed out of the blue with stage 4 cancer. I've gone through 2 years of chemo, 2 years of "clear" scans, and now suddenly I need a biopsy this week. As I face scans & try to focus my heart on Jesus rather than fear, I am stitching your scripture verses about PEACE. Thank you SO much for your blog which often encourages me! xxx

  28. What a wonderful reminder to come across tonight. My cousin is in critical condition from covid complications, and today has been particularly rough. I was searching out a new embroidery design to work on, to keep my hands busy and my mind quiet. I came across your site, then this post. It turns out you posted it a few hours before my cousin went into ICU. And on top of that, her name is Jennifer. Thank you a series of coincidences that brought a smile to my face on a difficult day. Many blessings to you.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jennifer
