"You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?" Psalm 56:8
Falling to pieces on the inside and looking like I have it all together on the inside. Yep that is exactly where I am right now. Has life ever just hit you when you weren’t expecting it and it completely took your breath away? Well take heart God is in control and He is orchestrating everything from His heavenly throne. God plans for us include prosperity and protection. He knows where we are weak and He gives us his word in which to find the strength and courage we need each day. He holds every tear we shed – the visible ones and the invisible ones, the ones we shed on the inside so no one knows we are falling apart. Let’s all take refuge under His wings and in His word so that all the pieces that are falling apart actually fall into place.
Heavenly Father thank you that you see when I am falling apart on the inside and trying to keep it together on the outside. That you hold me up in your hands and tell me it is all going to be all right. Thank you for loving each piece of me so much that you rearrange my pieces to make an even more beautiful piece of work. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
