I know you can’t feel it through
the shards of broken glass where your heart used to be,
but right now the Light
of Christ is rushing
into Your soul
like a river of grace,
flowing into the cracks
between each and every shattered piece
of your heart and soul and dreams.
You are being filled with glorious rays
of radiant hope,
Someday, you will
realize the gift you’ve been given
into a larger capacity to shine
like a brilliant sun
in this broken world.

Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 43:1-3 “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
Isaiah 12:2 Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Philippians 4: 12-13 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation . . . . I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Isaiah 40:29 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
1 Peter 5: 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Hebrews 4:16 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Whatever you are going through right now, I pray God seeps into the cracks of your broken heart all the way down to the core of your being. I pray you grow in faith, hope and love through this trial. I pray you can grow in empathy, compassion, wisdom and strength during this time. I pray God heals and restores you to wholeness, so you can bring the Light of Christ to others during their times of need in a more powerful way than ever before. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen
