Be Strong. Take Heart. He’s Not Done.

C18A56B9-7CE4-4ED7-BFD0-04D36176B91CIf you’re reading your tattered Bible through tears this morning—

If you feel like broken pottery—

Psalm 31 puts words to our pain:

-I’m in distress.

-My eyes grow weak with sorrow.

-I‘m forgotten. 

-My strength fails. 

-I‘m an object of dread to my closest friends.

-I‘ve become like broken pottery.

But Psalm 31 also puts words to our Hope—

-But I trust in you, Lord.

-My times are in Your hands. 

-How abundant are the good things you have stored up for those who fear you.

-He showed me the wonders of His love. 

-You heard my cry for mercy.

You may feel at your weakest, but in Christ Jesus, you have the heart of a lion. 

This very Psalm, that opens with tears and anguish, closes with triumphant anticipation —

“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” (Psalm 31:24.)

Today, if you feel like broken pottery, remember your Potter. He made the heavens and the earth, and His mighty hand is still on you.

    This is a really good reminder for this older woman who just had an interview to work as a Paraprofessional with Special Needs children in an Elementary school here in Somerset,KY. Will you pray with me for strength for this journey if I get this position?
