Greetings to you on this fine Wednesday morning........ How are things? If you say, "Well, not so good!" I have Good News for you! His Name is Jesus. Come, come, gather 'round. But first, HUGS!!!
If you've noticed, God's been talking to us about, THE HEART. We've NEEDED talking to about it. I know I sure have! Our hearts are sooooooooo precious. To us, and to God! No one can see our hearts except God! I wonder how we would LOOK, if our appearance took the shape of the state our heart is in. That alone is proof that "The LORD does not look at the things people look at." (1 Samuel 16:7)
How is your heart doing, Beloved? It's OK, just breathe! Have you been hurt? So much, that you think you might die? Have you entrusted it to someone - someone who vowed to protect and love it forever? Maybe a friend has betrayed you. Whatever your wound, it runs deep! Has the life been sucked out of it? Are you so devastated, that you think you'll never recover from it? Has it been ripped out of your chest, and trampled on? It is laying on the floor in a million pieces? Have you been violated and bullied? Do you feel lost and alone? Can't see the light?
The truth is, life is hard........ Much harder than we would like, wouldn't you say? But there is one Truth that far outweighs our troubles and hardships - GOD IS GOOD! No matter what we face, GOD IS GOOD! Even in the dark, when we feel lost and alone, GOD IS GOOD! In our weakness, GOD IS GOOD! When we fall flat on our faces, GOD IS GOOD! When we are dangling by a thread, GOD IS GOOD! In the lions den, and in the fire, GOD IS GOOD!!!
Today, whatever your circumstance, remember this.................... Grace WINS!!! God can take your brokenness, and make it BEAUTIFUL!!! He is your HEALER!!! Your STRENGTH!!! The LOVER OF YOUR SOUL!!! Today and every day, hold on to John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Being Born Again does NOT mean we are immune to the troubles of this world! But then, there are these 3 beautiful and Hopeful words..................... BUT TAKE HEART!!! Don't believe me? Go to the end of the Bible. Guess what................... GOD WINS!!!
