“Trust God with your anguish; It will birth something precious out of it.” ~ Beth Moore, James: Mercy Triumphs
I have had a very dysfunctional life.
I am broken.
Just when I think that I have got it all together and that I am finally going to be able to move forward, something will trigger a past memory or emotion and I will fall down in pieces again.
I fall down a lot.
I am so thankful that I have the blessing of Jesus to pick up my pieces and glue them back together in His image. Each time I fall down before the throne in pieces, He takes each piece, examines it, shines it up and places it back where He wants it to go.
I am going through a difficult time in my life right now. Nothing life-altering, but I am not in a good place right now.
I am broken.
I have felt disconnected from God lately. I started a new bible study 3 weeks ago and I feel as if I am just going through the motions. I keep wondering where God is. Is He still there? Is He still hearing me? Why can I not hear Him or feel His presence? Where has He gone?
He has gone nowhere. He is still in the same place He has always been; right by my side.
I know that while I am in a “dry” spell right now, God is still there taking care of me. He is waiting. He is watching over me.
He is ready to pick up the pieces. And out of those pieces, a new chapter will be added to my testimony.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
