Love is the greatest gift God ever gave man. Love is not wanting to go anywhere without her. Love is when you feel depressed and sickly without her. Love is caring for her physicaly and emotionally. It’s telling her everyday anytime anywhere anyhow for no just reason that you love her. Love is telling her you want to spend the rest of your life with her. Love is wanting to hold her in your arms until the end of time. Love is being helplessly and deeply in love with her and knowing your love and feelings for her will never change/end.
Brokenness- to be out of working order, not function, horse broken, a broken spirit, submissive
Some might think to be broken might mean to be sad or to go through a great loss. True brokenness is to be broken as a horse is broken and submits to his master. We must first admit we are broken as in ‘not working order’ or ‘not functioning’ before God can make changes in our heart so we can feel better. We have to be broken for God to fix us. We have to admit we don’t have it all together.
This doesn’t come without work or pain. Most people want instant gratification, a quick fix with little work involved. Anything worth having involves work. If we want the blessings and peace God has for us we must submit to him and ask for brokenness and a revival in our soul. We must be willing to submit before our master.
A prayer for brokenness, “Lord, show me what is in my heart I need to change. Help me understand these things so I can experience what you have for me and experience a revival in my life. What selfish, prideful, and dark places exist in my heart? Bring these things to surface and help me to overcome all of these. I pray all these things in Jesus name, Amen.”
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, these, O God, you will not despise. Psalm 51:17
Don’t expect more from a person than they are capable and you won’t be let down. Fully rely on God with all your heart for he is love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22). Man will always fall short of the glory of God because we are flawed. Dont rely on another for happiness that can only be found in Abba father. While man is full of sin, a lustful heart, greed, pride, and the ability to hurt one another God is love and always the same. He is our refuge. Fully rely on God in all things and you will be made whole.
In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. -Mignon McLaughlin
Have you been hurt? Or have you hurt someone you love? Are you the antagonist or the protagonist?
Does this complete your insecurities to make one feel small? What have you gained?
Once a heart is hardened can it be made whole again? Have you afflicted a woman’s heart so she has been make vulnerable to you? Have you chosen your words carefully or effortlessly? Were the words that gave self-gratification worth the pain inflicted on both you and her?
To what length will you go to earn her trust again? If you have hurt a loved one seek Gods council, repentance, and ask for His help to stop hurting the one you love. Ask him to heal her heart and make changes so you don’t lose the one you love. Don’t let Satan have a foothold and create lasting strongholds in your relationship.
He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain!’ and it does. And then the south wind blows, you say, ‘Its going to be hot.’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?” Luke 12:57-59
Man puts a lot of time into knowing the weather but puts less time into seeing the signs of Christ and his return.
I have found it very difficult to forgive myself for things Ive done wrong. We have all sinned and we all fall short of the glory of God. Admittedly, if I were perfect Jesus wouldn’t have had to die on the cross for my sins. After cancer my life was out of control due to PTSD. The body goes through so much pain and suffering. So does the human mind. I have been in a much better place for the last year but only because I press into God.
I felt better this week after praying and doing my daily bible study. I read today about this that Paul wrote; “I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from gentiles: in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. (2 Corinthians 11:26)
This verse helped me remember that even though I have endured so much after cancer that Paul faced hardships and we as Christains will too face hardships. Just because I am a Christian doesnt mean I am promised a perfect life or have a get out of jail free card. I have found to walk with Christ I have more strength when I endure those hardships. I have more power and can persevere in those trials.
If I walk with Christ (meaning dig into my bible study, pray, and listen for Him) I have peace and joy that surpasses all understanding in trials and hardships.
I had a revelation today. Sometimes a revelation is meant for one person and other times its meant to be shared. I believe there are millions out there that this was meant to be shared.
Luke 12:47,48 reads; That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
The relevance of this scripture can never be more true than when a person has survived a near death experience or of one who lives with chronic pain. He prepares those who have been through much and endure much tribulation with His daily word, a direct line of communication through prayer.
For those who seek God in times of need draw nearer to him and know him more. For that we are blessed. God in turn will use your experience to bless and grow other’s faith. This is where the ‘from everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded’ and ‘from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.’
To recieve God’s blessing stay in his word daily, use that open line of communication through prayer, and show his love through your actions with others.
