Broken Bones or Broken Hearts

When my husband speaks of his childhood as a boy, he talks about all his broken bones and injuries that came from the “crazy things” that he did along with his brother. His parents would take them to the doctor or hospital to get them patched up and they would eventually heal. To this day the scars maybe visible but the pain no longer exists.

I have never had a broken bone but a broken heart is something I know all too well. When I was a girl my father said words to me that not only broke my heart but for a time they contributed to who I had become. I was someone who struggled with needing to be the best and needing the approval of others. I was bitter at times, longing for my father’s love. One day had the opportunity to meet a Savior name Jesus, it wasn’t overnight but the more I allowed His love for me inside. He began to erase the negative words and replace them with words of affirmation with His love and His word. Because of God’s love I am no longer seeking the approval of others; I am just seeking my father, God daily. I am now know exactly who I am and I am encouraged daily to be authentically who He created me to be. He healed my broken heart. Psalm 147 says, “Heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.”

God is no respect of persons so whether, you have some broken bones or a broken heart God wants to heal you. He is the master physician who gave the gift to the one who resets the bone or stitches the wound but only He has the power to mend the heart which is broken and wounded. My prayer for you is that you would allow Him to bring the inner healing to your heart and live the life He created for you. Now here is the challenge, try Him, trust Him and I promise you can’t lose because in Him we win!

Be Release and discover the Queen in YOU.

Encouragers and Teachers

I love my mornings this is my quiet time before the family gets up and starts stirring. I spend time with God and get a good cup of hot coffee. I may listen to music or just spend time in deep reflection. This is just one of those mornings where I am reflecting on this past year as we approach a new year.

I have truly been blessed and I am not saying there have not been trials but I am focusing on how good God has been to me. This morning I am thinking particular about the women who God has brought into my life. Some of them were there as encouragers and teachers and for others I was their encourager and teacher but no matter what the relationship I have gotten just as much as I have given. Some of these women are survivors, spiritually mature or babes in the Lord. Whatever, there situations they are uniquely created by God and their destinies await them.

I have no idea what your past year has been like but I want to encourage you that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made and God knows your end from the beginning. He is always on your side and He will never leave or forsake you. I would also encourage you to embrace the encouragers and teachers that God sends you in this New Year some will only be there for a season but are part of your journe

My wish for you in the New Year and that you will find peace in our God and joy in everyday. Embrace your journey with all the bumps on the way because it is all for your good and you will be come all that He has created you to be , a woman authentic in her God.
