Have you ever had something that was special to you break? After it was broken, you thought to yourself that there is no way that it could ever be repaired. Every time you think about it, a deep sadness comes over you. You try to move on but your mind, heart and emotions are often drawn back into the brokenness of what had taken place. Before you know it, it has become one of the main focal points of your life. It determines how you react in different situations and how you interact with people around you.
You can feel as if the very thing that was broken will determine the way your life will pan out. Your feelings tell you that it will never get any better had the incident not happened. Too often, life can be filled with loss and regret without hope of anything changing. If this is the way that you have been feeling, I want to reassure you that you are not alone. I too, had fallen prey to those very feelings of hopelessness and a sense that the broken things in my life could never be fully restored to the way that they could be. I want to tell you that I was wrong.
There was a time where I had such brokenness inside from things that had happened in my life. I had read scriptures about Jesus being the Prince of Wholeness and about Him being the restorer of my soul. So many scriptures that spoke of Him repairing things that were broken and making them new again. In my mind, I believed it to be true but in my heart and experience it looked as if wholeness could be given to me only in part never in completion.
Yet, I would still pray and still ask Jesus to help me in the area of my brokenness. After many years of feeling this way, one day God met me more than half way and showed me that I could walk in one hundred percent wholeness. It was not just a mirage of something that I would never fully receive. What I thought was impossible, God said was possible. I am now in the process of being fully healed.
I say all of this to encourage you. If you have been feeling that there is no hope for things that have been broken in your life, whether it was something you broke or someone else broke. God can still come and fully restore you to wholeness.
Psalms 34:4-8 says, God met me more than halfway, He freed me from my anxious fears. Look at Him; give Him your warmest smile. Never hide your feelings from Him. When I was desperate, I called out, and God got me out of a tight spot. God’s angel sets up a circle of protection around us while we pray. Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—how good God is. Blessed are you who run to Him.
Psalms 23 says, The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul;
Today I want you to know and experience that Jesus didn’t come just to save you from your sins but, He also came to restore your soul.
