Dear Sisters : encouragement in scripture and poetry (by Kay Cude)

By Elizabeth Prata

To all my sisters who have lost a loved one and are facing the first holiday/anniversary/birthday alone…

To all my sisters who have spoken up for the pure doctrine of Jesus Christ in Bible study or against a false teacher and have been kicked out because of it…

To all my sisters who have approached their pastor with concerns of false teaching and have been summarily dismissed…

To all my sisters who are struggling to be a good Christian wife with a non-believing husband…or an apathetic husband…

To all my sisters who have a spouse deployed overseas…

To all my sisters with a Prodigal child or grandchild…

To my lonely and hurting and grief-stricken and saddened sisters. You’re not alone.

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

  1. Being isolated during this lockdown has brought a lot of stuff to the surface of my heart that I’ve managed to keep pushed down for a long time with busyness and connections with other people. It is painful and difficult and I am woefully discouraged. Thank you for the encouragement!

    1. Thank you, and I’m sorry for your discouragement. I think this time has been a time of introspection for many, and like you and me too, haven’t liked what they have seen. But the love of Jesus has hopefully softened those sharp edged and mellowed them into dew drops of faith wrapped in His grace, and hopefully strengthened us all the while…
