Love In Brokenness





I was broken.
My heart was shattered like shards of glass.....
My soul cried out in pain......
My physical appearance had begun to disappear.
I literally was walking through my life in a state of hopelessness.
And I had no clue...........

By God's grace, I had several in my life that were called to stand with me and for me.
Those who encouraged and lifted me up on a daily bases.
Those who held me up when all I wanted to do was lay down....
Those who would not let me quit in life. 

No judgement..........
They gave me hope.....
The gave me love. 

The broken need hope and to have hope, they need to be loved. 
They need to see there is a light in the midst of the darkness.....
For others to speak into their lives with a resounding voice of victory. 


When we extend love ( light), the broken begin to have hope and faith then becomes a light. 

God's word tells us in 
1 Corinthians 13:13
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Love conquers and covers.....
It shelters and protects.....
It provides and guides....
It heals......
It restores. 

1 Corinthians 13:7
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I am so thankful for the love I had extended to me.
I have chosen to be a light to the broken.
A light full of love.....
Just has those who shone their light of love in my life.....
Extended their grace and mercy....
Helped to restore my hope and faith......
Spoke victory over me and my life.....
I will shine mine. 
The light (love) of Christ.

  1. I believe the Holy Spirit drew me here today- I am an older lady in New Zealand- feeling much as you have described-knowing that my only hope is in Christ my Saviour.
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit., Romans 15:13

  4. It is easy to judge the broken, though it brings noting of real value to the broken or the one judging. But, love, acceptance and genuine friendship can change a life. Good post.

Fresh Bread

Give us this day our daily bread.......  The smell of fresh baked bread never fails to have my mouth watering and my nose on high alert, not to mention the warm savory taste each bite brings with melted butter dripping over and drizzling down my finger tips. To say I love fresh bread is an understatement at the very least. Bread that gives me nourishment is not to be wasted, and neither is the spiritual bread my daddy God has for me.

The last week or so, when my alarm starts ringing and before my eyes are open, I ask the Lord to give my daily bread. A fresh word, a warm aroma, and a sweet taste of his bread (word) to begin my day. Now I must be honest and say I am far from a morning person. I am not the "jump out of bed, feet hit the floor running, birds chirping" kinda girl. I am a " hit the snooze button 5 more times, slowly sit up , and pry my eyes open with a crow bar" kinda girl.  And thankfully my daddy God knows this, after all …

When God Says Go, Will You Go?

Remembering the story of Jonah , God instructs him to go to the city of Nineveh and preach against it because of all the wickedness there. However Jonah fled from the Lord and ran in the opposite direction. After being thrown into the sea and swallowed by a giant fish for three days, Jonah cries out to the Lord and is then spat up from the belly of the fish to go and do as he was instructed.

Jonah 1:1-3
The word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, : Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarnish, paid the fare and went down into it to with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

I still have a time wrapping my head around the fact Jonah was in the belly of a fish for three days. I can not fathom the intense grossness of it all. Can you? Had he gon…

His Binding Love Letter

Here it is post Valentine's Day and though I am not a huge fan of this particular holiday, I do find a tender sweetness of it's meaning.

Sometimes being single has it's downfalls and holidays are a reminder that I am indeed single. Most of the time I am quite content where I am in my journey of singleness and then there are those times in between when I wonder if I will ever share my life again with a man. I do not ponder on that thought quite often as I know my daddy God has a plan and the right man for me.  This year Valentine's day was odd for me. I was not in a place of sadness nor did I feel sorry for myself. It was not a pity party holiday for me but yet I found myself wanting to hear I am loved. And I believe my daddy God wanted to show me as well. So yesterday as I read many beautiful post from what seemed like tons of flower pictures, and candy filled "I love yous", I secretly asked myself what is my love letter in life…
