Be not broken

“Do not be afraid, for I am with you.”
Isaiah 41:10

Excerpt from poem, Winds of Change

“God does remind us if we look we’ll find
It isn’t so difficult it’s all in the mind
How I imagine and fear it could be
Remember, His plans only good toward me”

After the toughest battles we realize we were never alone.

Understanding “we are here”, at this time, for this purpose, in this season, in this chaos, for His good pleasure can be challenging yet invigorating, for others, overwhelming.

Large shopping centers have signs at the entrance and on each level, to help us find our way. Stores, restaurants, restrooms and exits, as well as stairs or escalators are placed in scale for our help.

Seeing ‘you are here’ can be incredibly comforting. Seeing where we are, we can locate the desired destiny, and begin toward our desired location.

Do not be dismayed, the Jewish commentators, with the Targum interpret as: [be not broken].

My prayer for you today, may you hear our Savior say, “you are here”, be not broken, for I Am your Savior, Jesus Christ and I Am with you, I will be your comfort. (John 14:16)

Don’t be dismayed [be not broken], for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭WMBBE‬‬).

“God does remind us if we look we’ll find
It isn’t so difficult it’s all in the mind
How I imagine and fear it could be
Remember, His plans are only good toward me”

I pray you pause in His presence…selah

and remember, His plans are only good toward you!

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
