I CAN LISTEN ~
When something is broken, it may or may not be able to be fixed. It takes a few moments to process the broken piece and then a decision can be made. There are times when our hearts are broken and nobody can see the depth of that. I can not fix it, but I can certainly listen with my heart.
GOD HEARS YOU and CARES ~
LUKE 12:7 (NIV)
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
I CAN NOT FIX IT ~
Throughout life, we will have times that seem impossibe. Things get broken and it's important for someone to say I'm sorry. But what if you never heard I'm sorry from someone? I had this happen to me and I had to learn to move forward in life. I did everything I could to show I was sorry and made a mistake. The other person said, "I'll never forgive you". The truth of something was mixed with many lies. I found I couldn't fix it and had to leave it with God.
There may be times in your life when you will never hear the words, "I'm sorry". Determine in your mind to forget those who will not forgive you. Choose to make a difference and let it go. The Bible says this:
Matthew 6:14-15 (NIV)
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
There is so many times when we just can not fix something. Times of learning new normals and beginning again. This happens with material things, spiritual things and physically. In each case, we deal with different things. I have found that it's important to have an ear to hear. Maybe not give advice at this point, but just listen to someone. I remember a time in life when I wanted someone to hear my heart. My mind was tired and I was weary in well doing. Life had hit me when a hard blow of life. I trusted God and I had to lean not to my own understanding.
Genesis 50:20 New International Version (NIV)
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
JESUS CAN FIX IT ~
Only the super glue of Jesus can mend something in life
Remember a few things, God has not given you the spirit of fear. God doesn't want you face a new day with defeat. He has given words to spur you on and people to cross your path. It's crazy how a few words of encouragement helps so much. You might think that God doesn't hear you, but he does. Let go of what you can't change and allow God the freedom to help in new ways.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
