UNDERSTANDING EMPATHY

 

I went to bed last night after having a particularly sad afternoon. I was not sure why I was feeling that way.

 

I HEARD THE LORD SAY: Empathic. People like that feel more pain. Youíve been faithful with what I have given you, honey. I will comfort.

 

UPDATE: I found out later that Grandma Anna had a really hard afternoon the same day, crying over the death of one His saints. She had found out the news that day at church.

 

============

 

I HEARD THE LORD SAY: The empathetic, they cost a lot of money. I will pay the bill.

 

[Today I had a conversation with my son who wrote his scholarship paper about loving people and empathy.]

 

============

 

 

VISION: I was holding up a barometer.

I HEARD THE LORD SAY: Very cloudy. For both of you.

 

COMMENT: The article, "Intercessory Barometers" (2/3/01) is available on my website. That is a more thorough understanding about what it means to be an intercessor with the gifting of being a "barometer."

 

 

============

 

I HEARD THE LORD SAY: Empathy. You know what to do. (I heard that phrase to the tune of Hey Lord.) Battle. War.

WORD TO PONDER: YOU ARE FEELING WHAT I FEEL

I have placed within you a barometer and compassion that is deeper than you understand. Sometimes you feel the pain of others and do not even know it. Sometimes you feel My pain for those who are hurting. Sometimes you feel alone, sometimes you are unable to sleep, sometimes you feel sorrow. In those times, even though you donít understand why you are in misery, I hear you battle through and cry out for My comfort. Dear one, in those times of naÔve pain, you have been faithful with what I have given you. All that matters is that you have carried your pain to Me and let Me comfort you. In so doing, I have also lifted anotherís pain.

 

"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." (Heb 4:15-16 KJV)
