Peace and Comfort

Hello Hearers,

      I would like to share a memory from when I was doing my hours to become a CNA. Two students were assigned to go around and check vital signs in the nursing home. When you walked into each of the rooms; you could feel the room and each room felt different. The room that  I remember the most, had two older people that I met while doing my class. Another student and I walked into a residents room and it was perfectly lit with the sun peeking through the windows just right; like sunset lighting. There was a woman sitting in a chair with gray hair. She had little make-up on if any, she was beautiful. I had to tell her she was, her inner beauty shined through. She had peace and aged gracefully.

     Then I looked over to see who she was visiting. An older handsome gentleman was sitting in the bed. Even though they were sitting across the room from each other it was like they were holding hands across the room without even touching. Their connection was so beautiful. The other student and I were in awe of them. They were content. 

     The encouragement in seeing this lady stay by his bedside no matter what. Staying by his side until the end, the commitment.  It is the commitment of day in and day out. This is what romance is. It is not like a romance movie or a book that tingles our flesh. It starts with the action of Love. This comes with pain. The pain of walking with someone knowing and watching their pain while still being there as they heal. Why woman hurt so much with a man is because we can see his potential and the new man that YAH our creator wants him to be. You know that man is in there, even if he himself cannot see it. This is part of the woman's calling as a Help-meet. 

Often women are walking at a different pace. Women are trying to walk fast or sometimes run and a man is taking his time. We notice this when we are walking outside, you often see women power walking and men are strolling. This is where we learn patience. Seeing this lady was still there for this man, she didn't give up on him. Yahshua our Messiah didn't give up on us and died for us to live for each other.  

     Looking at these two people, I saw how he brought her comfort and I saw how she brought him peace. We are working on our peace, like the saying "Peace be upon you." To remember the bigger picture of this is when we marry someone, it is role-playing of the bigger picture of being Yahshua's bride.

John 20:20-21 - And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Yahshua to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Jeremiah 33:11 ~ The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of host: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the Lord.

Joel 2:16 ~ Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breast: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 

Revelation 21:2 ~ And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from YAH out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
