Broken Blessing

 

Ok, so you’ve got more than enough on your mind and on your plate for now. Where do you turn when it appears that all turns seem left and not right? Doesn’t God hear and see that our faith is real? Why then, does this go on forever without some answers somewhere? Yeah, life is so daily and the battles rage and the sickness lingers, and the broken flounder and the heart breaks, and the finances press in, and the deadlines crowd and oh yeah, the pressure of it all is on overload and it’s all on you! Faint of heart, take heed, ‘because in God’s economy these things hold blessing so difficult to find when the mind is dwelling on the hardship of it all.

In Psalm 121: 1 the Psalmist prays the prayer that we need to pray, “I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.…

So it’s time once again for complete surrender and giving up and a giving over to the One in control. The Sovereign God who really knows what’s up and what’s going on in your world of trouble. He cares, He really does and He’s there to take that whole weight off your shoulders and give you rest you need for that heart, mind, and beautiful soul. Take Him up on His offer to help. Give it over yet again and walk away from the chaos, knowing it’s all left in good hands. He works with precision and order and He won’t answer a moment too soon or a moment too late. As a matter of fact, His answer might come weeks later and so far removed from our prayer that in our humanness, we forget and think it’s a coincidence. So be alert! It will all be perfected, and just at the proper time!

So ~ keep your eyes open for the little things and miracles along the way, because even the smallest things that could easily go unnoticed are the blessings hidden in the hardship. Yeah, there’s blessing in brokenness, so be broken, then and find blessing there.

James 1:12
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

Psalm 145:19
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

Broken and Blessed

So I know it’s a big world out there and a fragile one with a lot of broken pieces scattered in all directions. A lot of broken people and a lot of Humpty Dumpties that have fallen to their despair from walls of pride! Some beautiful souls have fallen, paralyzed by fear and insecurities and some hurting souls, have fallen prey to the world and their present circumstances. So many broken hearts stand in need of repair. So much brokenness ~ so much pain! Yet all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put them back together again. The souls at stake are ‘our’ souls, precious souls and beautiful souls and some are the innocent souls of children caught in the cross fire and strife of it all. What are their options? How did it all begin and where does it all end? Will it ever end? Tender and compassionate hearts can help but our all knowing God and the One who specializes in transforming hearts and lives and making beauty from ashes can lead you through it! It took some time to get there so it will take some time to get out but a decision to walk with God in obedience is your best option. We don’t have to be perfect to be blessed and we don’t have to be perfect to be used by Him. So for those failures that haunt your soul ~ give them over and choose today to make a difference regardless of your circumstances. God is in the business of getting us out of deep trouble and leading us into the safety of His home and the shelter of His arms. Rest there ~ with Him and find peace for this troubled hour and troubled heart.

The Sovereign, omnipotent King and the one True God ~ creator of life itself, has all the brilliant credentials and the awesome mastermind to put you back together again. Begin now! Be clay in His hands! Walk with Him and listen to His counsel. ~k

Isaiah 61: 1-3
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.
