Brokenness

Have you ever been so upset, or disappointed, or heartbroken to the point where you just wanna cry. And then you do, and all the while you are asking God why this happened to you. Psalm 34:18 reminds us that God is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. That's right, he is near when our heart feels like it's been ripped out  of our chest, or when we simply can't finds the strength to go on he is right there to put his loving arms around us and let us know that he's got it all under control and with him we are safe. He is our safety net in times of trouble. In the midst of our brokenness he picks up the pieces of our heart and makes them new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us that we are made new in Christ, and the old has gone away. In our brokenness we are made new. Sisters, rest in the truth that Psalm 34:18 provides, let it rest in your heart.  Then Zephaniah 3:17, tells us that God is with us every step of the way and that he takes great delight in each and every one of us. Even when we feel like there's no hope at all, there is hope in the promises that God gives us. He wants us to trust him in the midst of the brokenness and remember that he can make us whole again, rest in that truth as you go throughout your weekend. Maybe you are feeling broken, remember that you aren't alone in your brokenness because God is right there with you sister!  He is with you in whatever you may be going through, rest in Psalm 34:18 my dear sisters. Be encouraged that he is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit"

Zephaniah 3:17
"The Lord your God is with you, the mighty warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing"
