With a pang, I remembered precious memories of a prior friendship like looking through the photographs in my heart. Hidden inside that only God could see was the hurt—it made those memories bittersweet.
People leave. They break promises. They don’t keep their word. Misunderstandings get twisted into gnarled arguments. The hurt leaves you reeling like a punch in the gut.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26 ESV
That’s when God wraps His arms around your hurting heart and gives you the strength to forgive and move forward. That’s when He reminds you that He’s the constant companion, the faithful friend, the steady Savior.
Of all His attributes I love His loyalty the best. I can always run to His heart and His arms will always be wide open—longing for the same desire of an embrace that never fades.
In his presence pain has no place. Weary hearts are healed. Love lifts the chin.
He reconnects my heart with the reality of His precious promises and unwavering devotion.
His steadfast strength, His dependability, His reliability, It’s enough for me. I won’t fear. Because He is with me.
His steadiness is like an anchor for my heart in the ocean of life.*
Struggling to Come to God
I don’t know the condition of your heart. Do you have sore spots? Lonely spots? Abandoned spots?
If you do, remember that God is every bit loyal to you.
Let the truth of His steadiness be an anchor for your heart today.
Does that sound good? A steady God that is there for you every day?
Do you ever struggle to meet with Him daily? Almost like you have invisible walls built up to guard your heart? He will never wound you.
And if you struggle because of that or other reasons, I encourage you to take a step closer to your Creator every day.
I want to see you thrive on that routine so much that I’ve put together the Daily Time Challenge for anyone who might need help building the habit of spending time with God consistently. It’s daily encouragement to help you position yourself to hear from Him, the anchor of your heart.In his presence pain has no place. Weary hearts are healed. Love lifts the chin. Click To Tweet
