Day 27: Beautifully Unbroken


They came.

Some who I KNOW

and some who I now KNOW.

It was a piece of heaven

to have so many women

in my home

to gather together

with open HEARTS

to receive

what

GOD had prepared for each one of them,

as JESUS was in the house.

JESUS

who reached every HEART in such a personal way

because only

JESUS

can give the HEART what it needs when it needs it.

To be so vulnerable

is to OPEN your HEART

in a room

where you don't KNOW everyone,

yet

every one is

KNOWN BY GOD.

My living room

became a SAFE haven

filled with

HIS PEACE that transcends all understanding

because

GOD had prepared the space beforehand

because

HIS SON was coming to be the main guest.

JESUS~

who carries our every burden

because

HE wants to.

JESUS

who leads us to what you can't see

because HE

sees the big picture

as HE KNOWS

better than we do.

JESUS~

who holds you tightly in HIS ARMS,

holding you so STILL

that you can hear

your ABBA FATHER'S WORDS

so clear

that being STILL is where

HE PURPOSED you to be.

In HIS SON'S ARMS

who

took every undeserved nail

just because

HE was being

STILL

in that very moment

that

GOD PURPOSED HIM

to be.

Oh

TO BE STILL

in the suffering.

Oh

TO BE STILL

with tears streaming down your face.

Oh

TO BE STILL

when what you desire is not happening.

Oh

TO BE STILL

when

you can't make sense out of the senseless.

Oh

TO BE STILL

with the ONE who just wants

TO BE STILL

with you,

the you

who HE calls

HIS FRIEND

HIS PRIZED POSSESSION

HIS CHILD

HIS HEIR.

Because who would

BE so STILL

to remain on a

CROSS

when HE did nothing to deserve

such a crucifixion,

yet HE did it anyway

because HE had one PURPOSE on HIS mind~

YOU, ME & EVERYONE ELSE.~

"HE personally carried our sins in HIS body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By HIS wounds you are healed" (I Peter 2:24)

JESUS wore the nails to set us FREE

The room is now empty

and I miss seeing their faces

and miss hearing their HEARTS,

yet their remains a

BEAUTIFUL HEART

that was at first a bunch of

NAILS on a board

that became the

SAFE place

for where we hung

all our

BROKEN FEELINGS

BROKEN CIRCUMSTANCES

BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS

by SURRENDERING them

to our

SAVIOR

who came

to make all things

BEAUTIFUL

for

"By HIS wounds we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5).

Oh my LIVING room is truly LIVING

as my HEART jumps for

JOY

because

"Miracles take place

The cynical find faith

And love is breaking through

When the Father's in the room"

(from "THE FATHER'S HOUSE", listen below)
