This morning as I sat worshiping God, seeking Him in His word, praying….a couple of friends who are struggling came to my mind. They both remind me of me in a lot of ways, maybe that is why we are good friends. Anyway, I have been thinking how we each lost our fire at some point, the fire of Christ. How we have each been broken in deep ways and yet we come back fighting our way to our Lord.
This word today is for those who feel they live in a constant battle. Those of us who never seem to get ahead. After we fight one battle, it seems another one comes running at us full force. What are we to do? The forever broken ones,trying so hard to live for Him but can’t seem to catch much of a break.
We are to persevere in Him. Trust Him.
“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised.” -Hebrews 10:35-36
It seems so easy to say, so much harder to live by but it is what He calls us to.
We can’t look to the other ones who seem to have it together, have their dreams ringing true, and seem to be on a better path than us. We have to look to Christ. Look at what he walked through, He understands us better than any person on this earth. He loves us with an everlasting love.
So, all you broken ones out there, don’t beat yourselves up and don’t give up. “Patiently Endure,” in Him. You can do this with Him by your side! You will receive a great reward for it!
When you have nothing to say, when you are broken…whisper His name
He will come and heal the broken hearted. He will Hold you close
When you can go no further, whisper his name he will come to your aide
