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.

Little Thoughts For Big Days

So today is yours ~ just yours to spend how you desire. Oh I know there are deadlines, and time pressures and things to do and things to get done, but still the day is yours if by God’s grace you’ve been given another breath to breathe and another moment to savor. Breathe deeply and savor well. These are all God moments and tiny, little miracles that won’t come again. Moments appear and disappear into history, but the attitude with which we see them make us or break us. Yeah, life can be a challenge for sure and sometimes, just when we think it can’t get any worse, it does! So ~ offer praise any way, even through the rough terrain of your so human world, because you know that a divine and sovereign God oversees and has all your moments covered and even in those not-so-nice ones, you’ll find He tucks sweet and sometimes simple blessings in the depths of them for your enjoyment. Don’t miss ’em with grumpy thoughts or crowd them out with fear, worry or a complaining spirit. Take time out to find them today. As each moment comes to you in this chaotic and mixed up world ~ Let God speak to your beautiful soul and find that nugget to ponder in your heart and yes, praise God any way for his compassion and protection and oh yes, His sweet and amazing grace. That’s why we’re here ~ only by His grace and to glorify Him. Make your moments count! Make beautiful history today!
