Are you broken? And tired of feeling as though everything is going wrong? I know I am….
We become broken when we allow ourselves to become dependent upon others. When things do not turn out the way that we would have wanted them to; we get upset. When situations don’t go as planned–we lose hope, and when people fail us–we lose trust. In the midst of painful situations, we become broken!
Sometimes we become so broken that we tolerate things we know we shouldn’t. We then begin to bury ourselves in our own brokenness so deeply that we are unable to hear that precious–still voice saying, “Trust Me!”
God never intended for people to hurt us; but he did intend for us to trust Him. Proverbs 3:5 NIV instructs us to, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
God desires to heal our brokenness, if we would only allow Him to. Carrying a heavy load of negative feelings and emotions will only leave us tired and uneased. It is time to trust and believe that our Lord Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer, will make a way. He will take what is broken and make it complete and whole.
All that we must do is to seek him. “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well” Matthew 6:33, NIV.
It is time to let go of situations we have no control of and time to let go of people and things that cause us more harm than good. And I know firsthand that this may sound a lot easier said than done, but be encouraged as “All things are possible with Christ.” Each morning before I begin my day, I shout onto the Lord saying, “I trust you Lord!”
