The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
Good morning! “This is the day the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24) It’s a glorious day here in Florida. We have mild temperatures and the sun is shining bright. The leaves are changing and it feels good to be alive. It’s Forgiveness Thursday and some of us are on the downside of the work week. Don’t let a moment go by without getting right with God.
Often I hear people say “I’m broke” or “I’m broken”. What do these phrases mean to you? Does “broken” mean brokenhearted? Do you have a broken bone or are you sick? When you hear the word “broke,” does your mind immediately go to financial matters? Does “broken” mean unworthy? Do you think of relationship problems? Maybe you think “I suck at being a Christian”.
I have thought all of these thoughts at one time or another. Regardless to which one comes to mind, there is one answer that will solve the problem. Hebrews 13:5 tells us that God has promised he will never fail or abandon us. So, no matter how broken you think you are, you can always turn to him. When God does the mending, broken things become blessed. We can also rest assured in knowing that in all things God works for the good (Romans 8:28). While we may not understand now, we will one day. Remember, that no one is too broken for the grace of Jesus.
So, today if you feel broken, rest in knowing that grace is enough. If you know someone broken, stop what you are doing and pray with them. God bless you.
