We hide our broken pieces hoping no one will notice. Not realizing our hiding keeps us broken and hopeless. The Master reaches toward us, extending out His hand. Offering us healing, a chance to be put back together again. He heals our broken hearts, He binds up our wounds. He tells us that we’re chosen, never too broken to be used.
It was Your Love that anchored me in the midst of the storm. It was Your Love that brought me to Freedom’s Shore.
There are so many aspects of God’s character that amaze me. One in particular is how he speaks to us. Whether He speaks directly through His word, speaks directly to our hearts, or speaks to us using another person; He is always faithful to give us an on-time word of enlightenment, encouragement, and hope!
“We may not look like much, but God knows what we will become and loves us tenderly in every stage. He plants us strategically in a place where we will grow and flourish, no matter what season we are in. We get watered by His Word and by the Holy Spirit. We take root in Him, seeping deep and wide into God. All of this takes place underground, in the secret place. Some may not notice all the growth that is taking place, some may overlook our growth. But God is in the secret place with us. Soon enough, we spring forth. Life appears from the ground.”
Open the blinds and let the son shine through. A melody unending, a heart surrendered in truth. Sounds of praise that lift heavy hearts, the light of the son now piercing the dark.
In my own life I’ve noticed that I tend to put a lot of focus on the destination. I’m always thinking about where I’m going. So much so, that sometimes I fail to really appreciate the development and preparation that takes place during the journey. The journey is what molds and prepares us for our destination.
Today I was thinking about purification. And how purity happens on purpose. Purification always involves a filtration process. A subtraction and extraction of certain elements. Purification also often involves direction. Water has to flow in a specific direction in order for the filtration system to be effective.
The weight of His promise In awe of His goodness. This beautiful burden my heart carries with gladness. So I’ll keep pushing onward, till this burden births it’s purpose.
