There will be things in life that are heart breaking. Things happen suddenly and bring us to our knees. Calling upon the name of Jesus and trying hard to figure somethings out. We are human and there will always be things that make our minds wonder. But Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled".
John 14:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
HEART BREAKING ~
Have you ever heard a story or experiences something that just breaks your heart? I have and found myself trying to logic it out. God why did this happen and what good can possibly come from this? It just feels like you are going to cry forever. Then as time passes, you learn to deal with change and either become a better person or bitter person. It becomes a choice how we deal with things and the outcome if much our own choice. I choose to believe in Jesus!
My eyes have tears right now. I can't believe I have witness somethings that brought me to tears many years ago and continue to bring tears when I think about it. I was 18 years old when my dad suddenly had a heart attach at home in our bathroom and died. I saw my dad in that room and I will never forget it. I thought my heart would stop as they rushed him to the hospital. Little did I know that he would die that day and my heart would always feel the loss.
Truly heart breaking experiences in life, but somehow down the road, I given an opportunity to ask Jesus into my heart. I wasn't quite sure that meant but it was a beginning. As I hear stories now, I am taken back to the year 1973, when I would graduated and looked forward to Senior Year of High School. Graduation came and only a couple weeks later, my dad was gone forever. I had to step up and help my mom because it was the right thing to do. I was broken and my heart cried out for answers. Then someone told me, that I was God's masterpiece.
Ephesians 2:8-10 New Living Translation (NLT)
8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
MASTERPIECE ~ Designed for something greater than we might know. Each one of us was designed different and in the likeness of God. It becomes time to believe big and know that God is in charge. I didn't understand my dad's death and he was the first person I ever saw dead. Scary for a teenager who had been shelter from funerals and church. I only knew my own little world has been turned inside out and now I am to believe in a God who didn't heal my dad or did he?
Yes, I believe healing comes in many forms. Some of us are healed immediately and that's called a miracle from God. Others take time and effort to pursue Jesus. I had to let go of anger in order to receive God's words. The Bible says there is a time for all things. We know we were born and we know hat we will die someday. Nobody knows when that someday will happen and trusting God through things is important.
I don't know what you have been through in life, but God does. I know that he does care about you and wants you to live in freedom of thoughts. Maybe life changes way to fast and you wonder why God? Well, let go of the why my friend and allow God to replace that with hope of a better day.
If you don't have Jesus in your heart, ask him to forgive you of sin and come into your heart. Find yourself a Bible bases church and get connected to others.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
