Do you ever come to a broken moment in life? Someone says something hurtful, sometimes intentionally, but other times not. Or perhaps you feel so very stretched thin that you wonder if the world has been using a rolling pin on you. Maybe you’ve reached the end of your rope with a given situation in life, and you feel helpless to change it. You might even feel trapped.
You are not alone.
Maybe it’s mistakes you’ve made that you cannot possibly undo. Perhaps it’s your past that haunts you. It could even be things you have said that you did not mean, or even the things you neglected to say. It could be regret, shame, and a feeling of defeat that weighs so heavily on your shoulders.
Again I say, you are not alone.
In this world we will have sorrow, but Jesus has overcome this world. No matter what you have done in life, what hopeless situation you find yourself in, or how utterly helpless you feel, the Lord can work with it. No job is too messy, too big, or even too small. He cares about the most intimate details, but can overcome the most colossal of mountains in the very same breath.
Perhaps the Lord would whisper to you today, I am doing something new. I’ve brought you to this broken place to show you just how much I can do!
God can make beauty out of dust, and He can certainly turn around life for us. He can turn mourning into joy.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
You cannot see what He is working behind the scenes in your life, but if you can hold on, hang on, and trust Him, He will deliver you. He’ll make beauty out of ashes and do more than you can fathom or even imagine.
