Chosen by God!
“God, pick up the pieces. Put me back together again. You are my praise!” (Jeremiah 17:14 MSG)
During my quiet time Jeremiah I read 17:14. I read it in multiple versions and it was the Message version that struck a cord in my spirit. After thinking about it I felt I needed to list the broken pieces in my life and ask God to put me back together again. Sometimes you don’t realize something is broken until God shines His healing, and revealing, light on it.
As I wrote I asked my loving heavenly Abba Father to heal me from these damaging experiences and the emotions connected to them. I also asked Him to close the door to its power to impact my heart, my mind, and my emotions.
I was reminded to, “…be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” (John 16:33 Amplified)
And then this Psalm reminded me that when I lay it all out on His altar I don’t have to deal with this anymore. It no longer has any power to harm me:
“Listen, God! Please, pay attention! Can you make sense of these ramblings, my groans and cries? King- God, I need your help. Every morning you’ll hear me at it again. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on your altar and watch for fire to descend.” (Psalm 5:1-3 MSG)
What pieces of your life do you need to give to God to put back together? I invite you to take them to Him and let Him heal the hurts as only He can.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.” (Psalm 46:10 MSG)
