To a Woman of Sorrows, a blessing from a Mother’s Heart

 

Consolation and Uplifting to a Daughter Who is Hurting

 

By: Kimberly Dimick

 

I know you are hurting and struggling. I want you to know that your heartache matters to me. I wish I had some way of swooping down and lifting you up, darling girl. 

 

When I was a young girl, struggling in many of the same ways you do, there was this one, kind and gentle woman who always loved on me. She always encouraged my heart even when I was at the lowest of lows. So, I know the importance of having people in your corner who love you and believe in you.

 

You are LOVED and, even more importantly, you are LOVEABLE!

 

Really, what I want you to know is the same thing she told me–that you are LOVED and even more important, LOVEABLE. Many people will reject us throughout our life but I pray that you never believe their words or lies.

 

When you have no strength to protect yourself, God shields and covers you.

 

I pray for you that you are surrounded by God as with a shield. I ask that God covers you and protects you when you feel as if you can not find the strength to protect yourself.

 

I ask God to bring you behind a wall of separation from every person or pain and that in those quiet moments, just between you and Jesus, you will revel in each others love.

 

I pray this year that God is magnified over every situation and circumstance and they become so small in comparison to His majesty and glory — that weightiness of God coming to bear against all that hurt or seek to harm you.

 

I pray that those secret and precious things of your heart are unearthed again and you feel the joy of dreaming again, of hoping again.

 

It is safe to dream again, honey!

 

I pray that you will know, "Jesus loves Me, this I know, for the Bible tells Me so!"  I pray that this kind of simplicity chases away your confusion, your troubles and hardship.

 

I ask that God would take difficult things and show you how nothing at all is too difficult for Him. I pray you see God running toward YOU, arms outstretched, excited to GET TO YOU.

 

I pray that you will see yourself as God sees you — even and especially when you feel or think God would overlook you because you are tattered and torn. God LOVES to finish what He starts. He loves that you love Him and need Him. Jesus will never, ever, ever give up on you. I wish you could see you the way God does.

 

You are BEAUTIFUL. Kindness is always in your hand and in your speech. You have remained sensitive and sweet even though you have been through more in your life than most face in a lifetime. You have so much to give to others.

 

The River of God is carrying away your sorrows, even pulling it out by the roots!

 

I see a river of joy coming to your desolate places and watering those places within that are dry and cracked. I see that river gaining momentum and carrying away your sorrows, that have taken hold of you like the roots of a tree go down, but the power of its torrent pulls them out.

 

I see God replanting you, a planting of the Lord and new roots are going down deep, deep deep and nothing can in any way shake you from the place HE has planted you.

 

Your deep intimacy with the Lord, even in this deep suffering, is bringing you very near the Kingdom, and a time of fruitfulness is near!

 

I see you planted in a place that is near the very borders of what looks like the kingdom of heaven is only an arms length away! Yet, the land you are in is also pleasant and fruitful because of its proximity to that Kingdom. Your heart's nearness to God is what is making this place so abundant and fruitful.

 

Everything you do, you are doing for Jesus! Everything you do, you are looking at heaven to get the plan. Your life is like that reflection of heaven on earth.

 

He IS watching over your life to perform what you could not conceive of in your time of sorrow and grief.

 

God knows how you feel like darkness envelops you behind those clouds–but clouds will give way to sunshine! Look, sweet one, Jesus will rescue you because He loves you. He really loves you.

 

Even when God uproots or overthrows it is so He can plant, and rebuild, restore and ESTABLISH you, firmly and forever in HIS LOVE. 

 

 

With love,

Kimberly

 

Kimberly Dimick and her husband, Joshua Dimick, know how it feels to lose everything: marriage and family, church and reputation, finances and careers, and so much more. Together and separately they have walked the path of Love, a narrow path, a path that is lonely and not well-used.

They intimately understand the soul-shattering pain of separation and divorce and they also know "The Way Home" to a life of choosing unconditional love. The surprising answers to a happy marriage are shared in her posts, articles, and their book-in-progress.

As you venture on this journey with Kimberly and Josh you will experience how God shines His most brilliant light in her darkest hours. Today their mission is to provide a voice to women suffering in silence, shining the Light of Truth into the dark places. As you journey with Kimberly and Josh you will witness a true life transformation that will shatter the misinformation and lies commonly fed to women that keep them in false submission.

Sitting at my desk holding back the tears this morning. 

I can't even express to you all the ways this was meant for me. 

Thank you.
