I have asked myself, “Who is my real support?
Who has stood by me and continues to do so?
Who is a positive presence in my life?
Who has eased my journey?”
The answer is God.
God is my healer,
God makes a way out of no way,
God loves me,
God is able to put every effort
of the enemy to an open shame,
God knows my needs before I ask,
and when I asked God to forgive me
of my sins, come into my heart,
and be the Lord of my life,
I became a part of God's family.
Yes... God is.
God is my Pilot... I am the passenger.
With God as our Guide…
evil doer’s are spinning their wheels.
They may have hoards of helpers,
one with God is the majority.
“More pain than we know must have been
behind Jesus’s words,
‘A prophet is not without honor except
in His hometown and in His own household.’”
According to John,
“Not even His brothers believed in Him”
Jesus said, “Whoever loves father or mother more
than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves
son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me”
(Matthew 10:37; see also Luke 14:26).
He taught the closest relationships in His life
weren’t with His physical family, but
His Spiritual family.
Matthew 12:46-50 records:
While He was still speaking to the people, behold,
His mother and His brothers stood outside, asking to
speak to Him. But He replied to the man who told Him,
“Who is My mother,
and who are My brothers?”
And stretching out His hand toward His disciples,
He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers!
For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven
is My brother and sister and mother.”
Those who had lived with Jesus
for 30 years
really did not know Him.
But after his resurrection and ascension,
there they are in the upper room
worshiping Him as God
It is a great privilege to
over everyone else.
The world, the winds of life, the conflicts,
the pressures of life, and sometimes
our family betrayals, will try to break us,
but God has a way of taking all of the broken pieces
of our lives and He uses them
to make us more resilient and stronger in Spirit.
Our present sufferings do not define us.
They are just shards of brokenness that God will use
to lovingly refine our beauty.
The transformation from broken into beautiful
is neither easy nor instantaneous.
It demands a yielded heart and can be quite painful,
but it comes with great reward.
Thank You, God, for taking all of our broken pieces...
our scars, rejections, insecurities, betrayals, and failures...
and turning those broken pieces into
Thank You, Father God,
for allowing us to keep company with You.
