Funny but this morning I remember a time when one of my favorite vases was broken by one of my children. I was heart broken. Now I can say that I wish that was the most heart breaking thing I’ve ever endured. But we all know about broken hearts. Each of us has our own endurance and have overcome much. Your broken heart and mine might look different but broken is broken.
Oh beloved, you would love to be able to just pick up the pieces and put your broken heart back together again. But God wants you to know this morning that He will do that for you. It may never look like it once did, but with His hand of grace and mercy on any situation, you will know that He has touched your heart and given you fresh hope and a renewed desire to endure the breaking of your heart.
God also wants you to know that He will change the outcome one day. He hears your prayers, He sees your needs and He is partnering with you by Holy Spirit to renew, restore and refresh broken promises, broken relationships and broken dreams. It’s not time to give up, beloved, it’s time to hold on, for your Help comes from the Lord!
God loves you and He’s for you. Even in the 11th hour of your life, God is on time. Run to Him this morning, ask for a fresh infilling of Holy Spirit and an infusion of faith for your waiting. Hand Him your broken places and rejoice in your trust in Him. And live, beloved, in the Light of His restoration power for you.
