Sometimes you just need someone to storm heaven for you
Sometimes you just need someone to hoarse whisper it for you —
“Father of the Tired & Broken-Hearted…
oh, hear our prayer….
Give Your Child the wisdom to know it this week:
Hiding when you’re hurting won’t heal you and growing isolated can just let infection grow.
Give Your Child the love to live it:
The secret way to heal a broken heart is to let love leak out like an ocean through all the cracks.
Give Your Child grace to do the crazy impossible:
It’s the hurting and wounded who are always the ones called to be medics — to administer lavish grace, to cast the messy in the best, merciful light.The best way to tend to your open wounds is to open your arms.
Out-loving is the only ointment that healed anything.
Let the broken choose it:
When you’re most wounded by words, run to the only Word that always brings healing.
Let the broken see it:When you have Jesus on the inside, you’re never on the outside.
Let the broken say it:
When you’re bruised by lies, believe truth and whisper it louder: I am my Beloved’s.
When Love’s got hold of you, there isn’t a lie in the universe that can pull you apart.
Let the broken trust it:
Giving the benefit of the doubt — is what benefits the people of the Faith.
Doesn’t love always believe the best — not the worst?
And may that wind, brokenhearted Child, may it fly her hair like a glory flag,
And may the hills that rise before her be but an exhilaration,
And may all her trials be but a trail,
all the stones on the way be but grace stairs to God.
:In name of Jesus —
who broke His heart to heal ours…”
