Have you ever dropped something very fragile or expensive such as a piece of glass, china, or a mirror? The sudden gasp of the crash landing only to see the thing shattered in a thousand or more pieces! Desperation sets in trying to gather every tiny piece to make the precious piece whole again.
The worst place when growing up as a child was to go shopping in a gift shop with so many fragile pieces. My mother would be charged for something we (twins) broke after being told not to touch anything at least 10 times! We couldn’t put it back together, but then again the crash silenced the whole store! 🤣
Life can be fragile in every facet of our relationships, health, death, and financial, etc. It only takes one incident to turn life upside down with news that we don’t want to hear or don’t have any control over. We come to the place no matter how desperate we are that we can’t put the pieces back together or change the circumstances. Yet we can respond in a hopeful manner.
The solution is not getting inebriated on alcohol or drugs, (including prescriptions), to get whole or healed. Looking to the Lord is a first step as we can find counsel, comfort, and wholeness in this life. God can give you the strength and wisdom to get through your situation. We can’t always figure it out on our own. Notice, I said to get through and not to avoid the crisis.
“The Lord heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds (sorrows). Great is our Lord and abundant in strength. His understanding is infinite” Psalm 147:3,5.
“Healing their pain and comforting their sorrow” (Psalm 147:3 Amplified)
This time of year can be challenging with painful memories due to a loss of a death, divorce, suicide, or any other life changing accident. I know it can be difficult, but I want to encourage you to ask the Lord to make you whole today and allow His healing grace to strengthen you. If you have to forgive then release it to God and allow Him to begin the healing process.
Only the Lord can restore the shattered pieces of our life if we allow Him because he binds up our wounds and heals the brokenhearted.
“See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”
Isaiah 49:16 NIV
Hope you are enjoying this long holiday weekend my friend.
