There was this heart so tender…. So eager to serve , give, love and worship.
There was a young woman, a wife, a mom – with this heart so tender.
She was given much responsibility. She found new friends. She loved her family, she loved her Savior, and she loved Serving.
Many years go by. She is still married, still having children, and still serving.
Until… the years that have gone by… with the hurt word, the criticism, the man-made rules, and the friend-ships that walked away- were still there… In her heart… hurting.
What’s a girl to do?
Her life of service for her King, now dragging along the baggage of hurt, fear of man, and somewhat anger at the Pharisees that pointed their fingers and said… “You are not good enough for us anymore!”
What’s a hurting heart to do?
Let Jesus heal… that broken heart.
Let Jesus take the painful criticism.. The pointing fingers, the critical spirits, and the anger… and let HIM take it away.
He is the only ONE who can!
One by one… that girl allowed the sin of worry, doubt, anger, and fear creep into her Life of Service…
Because of Man. Man-made rules, ideas, and opinions.
When Service becomes a battle of baggage, unclaimed by the one who is carrying it…
It is to be cast at the Savior’s Feet.
He never meant for the Love of the young woman for His Name, and her love, and desire to serve …..To turn into a burden that breaks her heart.
Reprieve – Step Back. Rest. Heal. See the vision clearly again.
Let The ONE you serve- Reclaim you, for HIM again.
And when the heart is healed – it will overflow with an abundance of love, understanding, and energy for the Girl that she use to be- serving next door.
Jesus Heals Broken Hearts- mended for His Service- again and again. He healed mine.
