Psalm 73:26-28 “26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you. 28But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”
Hey! Hi and hello, ladies. I know I’m finding you Presenting Reasonable Endeavors That Thrive Yielded to God and his purpose. My prayer for you this week is that you would soar as God fully intended you to do so. Is it true, that if your car breaks down you take it to the mechanic to get it fixed? Or if you broke the heel on your favorite pair and most expensive shoe, would you take it to the cobbler? Absolutely! You wouldn’t just let your car keep putt-putting along, and you also wouldn’t let your favorite pair of heels just in your closet, broken for years. Then why do we take so much time hemming and hawing, crying and snotting, cussing and fussing before we put our broken heart in the shop of Jesus. Now, of course, we must stay true to the context of the scripture. The psalmist, in earlier verses, speaks of how he was broken down, not only from the daily wear of life, but from the constant battle of fighting his flesh and fighting temptation. Our battle is as much spiritual as it is physical – exhaustion, sickness, old age, etc. Throw in the mental and emotional while we’re at it, because at some point even those parts of us get beaten down. “But” and there is always a but, “God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Y’all, if that doesn’t jump some life back into you, I don’t know what will. The psalmist points out how just being near to God is good. He becomes a refuge, a place of safety and protection. It’s hard not to heal in a space like that. I encourage you to take your weakened, crushed, or destroyed heart to Him because He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. God can heal a wounded heart. He wants to. He's here for it. You only need to trust him to do it. And once you have received your healing make sure you tell everyone of His works. Sing and dance about hoe He brought you through. Let's allow him to come in and do his beautiful work of mending your heart by reading His word daily, praying for your healing and restoration, and being obedient to what he says as you move forward in this healing process. I can't wait to hear from you about how God has blessed your heart richly. Till next time. Have a P.R.E.T.T.Y week.
