Devastation and Brokenness

Image result for isaiah 61

Devastation and brokenness…
occurs many times in our lives.
But it’s our choice…
whether we succumb or strive.
For the pits are deep and dark…
that we can fall in and stay…
or we can climb from the ashes…
to overcome each new day.
For we can learn from mistakes…
whatever they may be…
and keep moving forward…
to overcome any adversity.
Now it is not easy to climb…
for the path to wholeness is steep…
but as we continue to persevere…
the blessings of the Lord we will reap.

Dear Lord, only You see the struggles that we endure every day and even the devastation that occurs in our lives. You see the brokenness that results and the pain that is suffered from the wounds inflicted. We pray for the strength to endure and the perseverance to overcome every obstacle placed before us. We ask for beauty for ashes and joy for our tears with total healing and restoration for all of Your children to walk into the fullness of our calling with You… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

“And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

“He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3

  1. Reblogged this on Reflections from Beit-Shalom and commented:
    Some good thoughts about how we deal with what happens to us in this life. Been there. These are words of wisdom. Sometimes, though, it is not as easy to do as it is to say (or write). If you need help, contact someone to help you. Keep reaching out until you find someone. Oftentimes, it is just that we need someone to listen and help show us where there is light in the midst of the darkness.

    • Thanks for the reblog and the comments. Many of us have been in that place of brokenness and devastation, and it is not a fun place to be… but it is a place where we become more receptive to what God wants to do. We have to keep reaching out for Him and others in our brokenness because He will use those who have been through similar tribulations to help those overcome too. God bless you!
