Paintbrush of Red

Some days the pain goes way deep and the hurt is really real and really hard and the heart hurts and the head hurts and the soul cries and the tears flow and the days are just so overwhelming.

In these anxious-filled, difficult moments, we have an Author writing our lives with pen in one nail-pierced hand and a divine paintbrush of grace-filled red in the other. His blood was shed for us and yeah, He paints our story beautifully now because of it.

He’s our Saviour and He’s made a way for us to make it through this hard place! Only because of the cross, His death, and His life can we have hope and do this hard thing, defying us and staring us in the face. So whatever it is He’s written and writing and hand-painted for your story, you gotta know He’s got this and His sustaining grace covers it for us.

So beautiful you with a beautiful soul, At such a time as this, He is our Healer, our Protector, and our Provider through it all and all the way to the cross He proved it. Now, just hand those anxious thoughts, that fear, disappointment, and deep hurt over into the Saviour’s pierced hands, the one and only Author of our faith who paints our story so perfectly; so beautifully perfect for us at such a time as this! It’s ok then to just breathe and rest in His care and safekeeping and know the promise of Romans 8: 28 is Truth!

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”


Smack Dab In The Middle

So the thing is this, what to do when inner self finds inner self smack-dab in the middle of where you don’t want to be? Right in the middle of hard places and no, you didn’t even choose it with bad choices, but it seems standing up for the good, and for the right placed you right there in the wrong. Where do you go with that? Where do you go when smack-dab in the middle of wrong is really the right place but the oh so difficult place for you to be? Mom, sometimes it’s you there on the bad end of kid’s choices, when standing up for the truth, puts you in the bad books! Worker, teacher, whoever you are sitting there in the wrong because of the right, you fill in the blanks of your life here in this uncomfortable place to be and beautiful soul, if it’s your spot for now, you gotta know, It’s the corner where our Lord refreshes, comforts, soothes and eases the tension and the pressure. It’s where He whispers out from under the weight of His cross and then shouts through the victory of the empty tomb, through the vastness of His love, grace and mercy, and in His own way, customized just for us, He reminds us to let Him take it. So you and I and we and us, Let’s let Him be all that we need for this. Allow Him to take it, manage it and perfect it. He’s got it so don’t fret your beautiful soul with its shenanigans and yeah, the thing is, in the big picture, remember the right side of the cross was so wrong in the hands of the angry mobs, but yet so perfect and so needed for the Father’s perfected work in the world and for the world.

Our Saviour who knew no sin, no wrong, yet suffered in its grip all for our sake, knew the hard place in life. He lived the right! He lived the Truth and took the beating and He took the wrong. So, you there, right there where you don’t want to be ~ when standing for the right and the good places you in the wrong don’t forget about the cross of Christ.

Yeah, He had the cross! He took the cross! He suffered the cross and all the stuff that went with it, and our Lord has this hard place for you and He’s perfecting that which concerns you. It takes time, because He does it so right and so well and so perfect and so timely, so let Him be all that for you for now. Let Him be that sweet peace and glorious rejuvenation in your tough corner for now. The Apostle Paul knew of His perfected and ongoing work in his own life when he penned the words in Philippians 1: 6, “For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”


“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your loving-kindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.”
Psalm 138: 7, 8

“Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.”
1 Thessalonians 5:24
