Just One More Day


Folks, I’m feeling a little weary this morning. Yes, I’m tired from travel, but things happening in the world and close to me have me feeling drained. So I beg you to forgive me for posting just one more repeated blog post today. I would ask that you join me today in prayer for the things heaviest on my heart. God knows who and what needs…that’s the beauty of our precious Heavenly Father.


I’ll be praying for you today too! You are always on my mind.


Quick Fix


DSCN0582If you’re like me, you’re always looking for a quick fix for getting things done. A little shortcut here, a little time saved there. Sometimes it works and sometimes, well, let’s just say, it would have taken less time to fix it the correct way.


My husband thought he’d go the quick fix route with one of my tires a couple of years ago. It had been slowly losing air and Mason would fill it as needed. He even bought some tire sealant to stop the leaking. It didn’t work as planned and he ended up taking the tire to be repaired by professionals.


Isn’t this the way we are with our spiritual lives at times. We know there is an issue. We look for a quick fix. But in the long run, the only thing that will make it right is doing the right thing. Mending our soul, the right way.


That pesky devil is out to get us. He is firing some flaming arrows directly at us. Paul mentions such actions in Ephesians 6:16 (NIV) and how we are to protect ourselves. “In addition to all this (using the armor of God for our spiritual journey), take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”


The flaming arrows the evil one points directly at us can be lethal. If we are not prepared, we will be in trouble. And if we have been hit by a flaming arrow, we must allow full healing of the wound. A quick fix will not work. A job done half way will not work. We must take it to the One who is the greatest Repairman of all time. God.


When we bring our brokenness to God, He is able to make the repair. Completely. Satisfactorily.


King David knew of this brokenness and what God’s role was to be in the healing process. In Psalm 51:17 (NIV), David said, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” When we give our brokenness to God, our wounded spirits, He will accept that sacrifice and repair the damage.


David also knew restoration. Psalm 23:3 (NIV) tells us, “He (God) restores my soul.” Complete restoration. Complete healing. Complete mending.


You see, when we give our wounds, large or small, to God, He promises to do the fixing. There is no reason for us to believe we can do it on our own or that we can fix it ourselves. We can’t. It’s not possible.


So I ask you today, what wounds do you need to give to God for repair? What brokenness have you held on for far too long? Why not let the great Repairman fix your heart the right way? He’s the expert at it. And with the mending of our souls comes a lifetime guarantee…no, an eternal guarantee.


Please don’t go another day with the wounds you carry. God’s arms are out stretched and waiting to take care of it for you. You just need to give it to Him.


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
