I know you are tired and worn. You wonder if anyone cares or understands the burdens you carry. Some days you feel that you can go on no longer, but that is when I carry you. For your service to the least of these touches My heart. There are great rewards for those that lay down their lives to serve in such humility. Whether you are caring for the physically or mentally disabled, the elderly, the orphan, the homeless or those in prison, you are ministering to Me. I never forget the tears you shed for Me. I never forget the times you have cleansed Me. I never forget the times you have fed Me. I never forget the long hours you have spent by My side. I never forget the sacrifices you have made when no one else knew. Never. Every act has been recorded in My book. Every tear has been stored in My vial. Like the woman who poured out the precious ointment on My Son, so is your sacrificial service of love to Me. Thank You, My child. Rest in the knowledge that My grace is sufficient and that you will be rewarded greatly.
Matthew 25:34-40 The Passion Translation (TPT)
34 Then the King will turn to those on his right and say, ‘You have a special place in my Father’s heart. Come and experience the full inheritance of the kingdom realm that has been destined for you from before the foundation of the world! 35 For when you saw me hungry, you fed me. When you found me thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I had no place to stay, you invited me in, 36 and when I was poorly clothed, you covered me. When I was sick, you tenderly cared for me, and when I was in prison you visited me.’ 37 “Then the godly will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty and give you food and something to drink? 38 When did we see you with no place to stay and invite you in? When did we see you poorly clothed and cover you? 39 When did we see you sick and tenderly care for you, or in prison and visit you?’ 40 “And the King will answer them, ‘Don’t you know? When you cared for one of the least important of these my little ones, my true brothers and sisters, you demonstrated love for me.’
Psalm 56:8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
You’ve kept track of all my wandering and my weeping. You’ve stored my many tears in your bottle—not one will be lost. For they are all recorded in your book of remembrance.
