So when it’s all cut and dried it just seems to be one big complicated mess of trouble and suddenly your wonderful world has taken a tumble into inside out and wrong side up. You don’t know what happened, it just did. Trouble knocked on your door and you didn’t even answer but it pushed it’s way like an uninvited guest coming in unannounced and now there you are, in the middle of turmoil and any thing but peace. So what do we do in complicated situations when circumstances are beyond our control and springboards for strife and tension in the workplace, the home, relationships, and hostile surroundings? What to do? Where to turn when the hope that you had yesterday crumbles at your feet leaving your beautiful soul shattered and broken? There is healing for that ~ just when you think nothing could ever help or any good could ever come the Psalmist gives us sweet, assurance in Psalm 147:3 – 4, 5, 7, 12, as he recalls God’s leading of his people out of exile and His restoration of Jerusalem, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension…..Sing out your thanks to the Lord…..Glorify the Lord O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!”

So when your world has been crushed ~ God restores ~ He really does! He restores the ruined. Breathes hope again into complicated situations and offers healing for that shattered and broken, beautiful soul. Dismiss yourself from the unwelcomed guest and get alone with God to sort it all out and lay it all out before Him. Step by step He’ll lead you through! Just trust Him for that today.

“Joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth. The sea and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever.” 146: 5, 6

Savor those words! Ponder them in your broken heart! Claim His promises! Psalm 146: 6 is a truth and a promise you can count on.

God Bless

Sometimes it’s just one little thing that haunts you and keeps you from joy in that soul of yours. Sometimes it’s just something small but so overwhelming that it takes over your thoughts, your focus and ~ your life. You can’t live without thinking about it and you certainly can’t live comfortably with it in your every moment. What is it that has you so fixed in it’s bondage that you can’t get free? A health issue, a financial strain, a bad choice, a child, a prodigal, an offence, a job, maybe a relationship or a relative that has your heart and soul so tormented that it seems to stalk you relentlessly, hounding your every day and your every sleepless night? Where does it end and where is relief from the torment? Matthew reminds us of the Lord’s words in Matthew 11: 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Friends there is no other place to rest your weary, troubled mind but in the Lord’s care! He’s got you and He’s got your problem. So let Him take it and then ~ oh soul, find rest and find that joy that comes in that simple trust and that sweet, child like faith.

Jeremiah 31:25
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
