Day 38: Healed Hurts


Three calls

From three different women

who are facing

what they don't want to face

because it hurts

And you wonder~

Where is GOD in the midst?

HE

is the midst

HE

is the One

who is going to fix the

HURT

because that is what

HE DOES!

GOD doesn't cause the pain,

HE feels it with you~

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit"(Psalm 34:18)

even though it may still hurt.

BUT

then

HE goes one step further~

"HE heals the brokenhearted

And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow]" (Psalm 147:3).

Because

that is

WHO GOD IS~

"...the FATHER of compassion and the GOD of all comfort,

who comforts us in all our troubles" (2 Corinthians 1:3)

Oh how I hate seeing the realities of life

playing out in those around me &

oh how I feel the pain as I know it all too well,

BUT

oh how the realities of life bring us to a crossroad

to choose

Who to Believe~

who will carry us through the

not so good parts of life

that hurt~

"It is because of the LORD'S lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, Because HIS [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:22-23)

Because even though

"All Good things must come to an end"

so do

Bad things,

because

we have the

GOOD

always in the midst of the Bad~

JESUS

Who had to withstand the bad

in order to clothe us

with oh so much more

that allows us to

press forward with

HIS PEACE

in the midst of the not so peaceful moments.

Let's

FAST

from our

HURTS

by placing them in the hands of the One

who is reaching out to take them

one by one

so

HE

can

fill you with more of

HIM

Piece by HIS PEACE!
