Feeling Trashed? Day 2: God’s heart for you!



 My child, I see your heart and I desire to know you in your inmost being. Before time began, I called you by name and you were mine. I created you will a specific purpose in mind for your good and  my glory. When your heart is broken, when you are battered by this world and full of troubles, don’t throw away your confidence in my care and concern specifically for you. Didn’t I tell you, in this world you would experience many troubles?  Take heart my beautiful child, I have over come the world….Take your heart and place it in my loving hands that will never leave you or forsake you. For I am the watching you and you will forever be shielded by my righteousness, held close in my hands…

Loved with an everlasting love-

(words of love complied from scriptures as if expressed directly by our heavenly Father)

Does God protect a heart of compassion ?

It’s late and everyone is asleep.

I know in the morning that my husband will face a situation that could radically alter our family security. Almost to the day that we launched the Freeride 836 fundraiser, a work related situation has threatened us. Corporate changes aren’t family friendly. At first I was nervous about the contrasting situation- On one hand, we are raising thousands of dollars for an orphanage. On the other hand, a change at work was taking money from our family.( a lot of it!) Faith in God has a way of presenting me with contrasting situations

Does a situation or person have the power to undo the blessings of God in our life? Even as Christians, when we face hard questions, it can be difficult to live the reality of faith. I felt this situation was directly from the enemy of our souls, distracting us with fear to rob our blessing.

Will God’s blessing still stand when my resources seem to be taken away from me?

Trying to riffle through these thoughts, I find this verse that begins to recycle my growing fear. I believe it is time to take my heart of fear out of the trash and place it in the safety of God’s recycling bin of truth.

Psalms 41:1-2

1Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
The Lord protects and preserves them—
they are counted among the blessed in the land—
he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.

God protects a heart of compassion with His own provision


He gives protection, blessings and prevents enemies from having their way with you! WOW! Corporate America doesn’t stand a chance against this verse! What’s coming against your heart of compassion? Is it fear you won’t have  job? Lack of faith in your 401K? Distress about your rent for next month preventing your tithe?

I am recycling my fears tonight with the truth that the Lord will protect my husband and continue to provide for our needs. Truth silences the voices that try to whisper worries into my ear. God will not allow the desire of our enemies to control our purpose in this world…

Will you consider this verse too the next time you hear the same garbage from the enemy of your soul?

Will you take time to recycle the fear with the truth of your faith?

Let’s stand together with the truth our lives resting secure in the hands of the one who loves us the most-
