I saw a meme online today and it brought me into a state of great emotion. The meme read, "God will put you back together right in front of the people who broke you." Wow, now that's a statement right there isn't it?
How many of you have been hurt in your life? Raise your hand, and stand up if you need to. You know, just like I know that's all of us. Every single person has been hurt by someone. Why is that do you suppose? It's because we live in a sinful world, and people will always fail you, even the best person, with the best intentions, will fail at some point in their lives. Though we may be good-intentioned, and looking to do good in this world, we will never be 100% perfect because we're people, and though we have a perfect example of how to be in Jesus, all of us thus far have failed to emulate that completely. Though men will fail you, God never will, but that's not a lot of comfort to most people when someone does something to them that destroys their heart and maybe even their mind.
It's an unfortunate truth that people can be cruel, sometimes very cruel. Sometimes the very people who are supposed to love us hurt us the worst. When we should experience love like its described in the Bible, sometimes even our own family cannot, or will not express love to us, and that can be heartbreaking, and life-shattering. How do we deal with hurt so deep that we feel intense physical pain, even though the wound isn't physical? How do we dig our way out of a pit we're thrown into? The simple answer is; we can't. It's in these times we must turn to the only one who loves us unconditionally, will never turn away, hurt us, or leave us. We must put our faith, trust and hearts in God's hands, go to Him in the secret place and pray for peace, comfort, guidance, and love.
Have you been hurt? Have you been broken by people and you don't know how to regain yourself, your sanity, and stop the pain inside of you? I want to speak to you very transparently and from experience, God is your only hope, but He is THE HOPE. If you sincerely seek Him, His righteousness and His Kingdom, He will deliver you from your suffering, your pain, and your heartbreak. He makes all things new. He is the restorer of all, and He does not fail, period.
Satan wants to keep you where people put you, stewing in your own mind, repeating thoughts of hurt and heartache, and wondering how your life will ever be the same, but God wants to redeem you, restore you and lift you up, and He will if you seek Him and allow it. Yes, God will certainly put you back together right in front of the very people who broke you, and he rejoices in doing so. He is Mighty, and He cannot be shaken. He will fight for you. Let me say that a little louder so those in the back can hear it. HE WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!
"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:14
I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries. Psalm 89:23
Y'all, if you read this today and it spoke to you, seek the Lord and let Him take control and help you rise up. I know what God can do, and I know what He's done for me. I am living proof that God is good, He is faithful. May His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. If this blog touched you leave me a message and I'd love it if you'd spread the charm around to your friends or give it a like.
Thanks for stopping by! May God be given all the glory for what He will do in your life when you allow it. Until tomorrow I pray you'll be blessed.
