Quiet Moments With God -- The Healer of Broken Hearts
In the midst of sorrow or hardship, our sight sometimes becomes so narrow we forget there is One who sees it all--the beginning and the end. While our eyes are on our troubles, we do not see the glory or the hope. Instead, we feel the weight of sorrow, fear, responsibility.
God waits for us to look to Him. He will carry our burdens. He will break through our sorrows. He will take our hand and squeeze tightly. He will draw us close and enfold us in His love. And He will heal broken hearts.
The glory of God is so bright it pushes back every shadow. When we are in the light only then can we see the truth.
There is nothing God does not know about our lives--the joys and the sorrows. The wonder of it all is that no matter how deep a valley we find ourselves in He will be there also. God gives us strength and direction. He will carry us out of the valley and set us upon the hilltops where we can see the beauty of a landscape shimmering in His light.
He has a plan . . . He always does. He wastes nothing. He will lead us into His presence and reveal His purposes. Praise Him!
Grace and peace to you from God.
