Nothing Too Broken
by Shelley Brown
My life season has changed. I always thought the autumn of my life would be one of peace, enjoyment and ease. Yet, I find myself in a time of a serious struggle like I have never known before. God has always brought me through challenges with victory. Faith answered me.
But, I find myself surprised at this moment. I know His Word says I shouldn’t be surprised by trials, but here I am ... SURPRISED!
I can imagine that Job was surprised too. He had a good life. He honored God. He was successful. He prayed for and loved his children. I am sure when trouble came he was not sure what hit him. He was used to having favor. Yet, he said this in Job 13:15:
“Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.”
I want the heart of Job. “I’m trusting in you, Jesus, no matter what! Whatever you require of me, I want to give.”
The fog around me is thick and dense and I can’t see where safe harbor lies. But, I know if I hold on to the hem of His robe, He will lead me to safety.
Are you there today? Do you wonder where your favor is? Maybe you feel that you never had favor. Maybe its been taken from you. Our job is not to figure out the why, but to figure out the Who. Who will carry us? Who will make the way in the darkness and bring us to the light? Who will give us power to defeat Satan as he comes to steal, kill and destroy? Who will bring us peace, love and eternal life? Only the ONE who loves us enough to give His life—Jesus Christ.
I’m praying for you today as you reach out and believe in Him. He is the Season-Maker and our hope lies in Him.
