Today I am so thankful for the Word of God which ministers life to my brokenness and to my soul.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 "For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not calamity to give you a future and a hope.
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
"The suffering caused by shattered dreams must not be thought of as something to relieve if we can or endure if we must. It's an opportunity to be embraced, a chance to discover our desire for the highest blessing God wants to give us, An Encounter with Himself". Quote from Barbara Rainey at Empty Nest.
Today Father, take my sadness, my brokenness, my emptiness and make it what You would have it. May I encourage others as only You can encourage me. May Your strength pour forth through my life for this hour, for this day. Fill me with all that You are for there is nothing that compares to You. Amen
