When my heart was bitter, when I was all cut up inside, I was stupid and ignorant. I acted like nothing but an animal toward you. But I was still always with you! You held my strong hand! You have guided me with your advice; later you will receive me with glory.
Do I have anyone else in heaven? There’s nothing on earth I desire except you. My body and my heart fail, but God is my heart’s rock and my share forever.
Psalms 73:21-26 CEB
The only source for eternal Life and Truth is God. The only solution to our problems is God. Salvation can only come by way of God, so why not put our trust fully in Him?
We expect Him to be there for us, but how dependable are we to have complete and total faith in Him? Where’s our unconditional love for Him?
Lord, no matter what I do or say, no matter how I act or think, You have always been my comforter, my rock, my fortress, my protector, my Father-Mother—my beginning, middle, and end. Thank You.
Thank You for mending my broken heart each time someone took advantage of me, played games on me, felt empowered to tell me lies while “stabbing” me in my back, or looked in my eyes claiming to love me while they schemed with and lusted after another. Thank You for helping me to forgive them, sometimes in phases, and begin to let go of the grip the pain had on me.
Thank You for redirecting me when my selfishness steered me off of Your desired path. When my lust, greed, or self-centeredness reared their ugly heads to get in the way. Thank You for loving me even when I’m unloving. You are the example that I’m to follow, unconditionally, yet I struggle, even though I know the endless blessings that I would have. Thank You for still loving me.
Thank You for lifting my head, wiping my tears, strengthening my body, healing my heart, calming my mind, mending that which is torn or broken, and taking my hand as I learn to walk on a new path with increasing confidence.
