Are you Brokenhearted?

I dont know about you but this week has been a very tough week for our family. (Although I must say the Lord did shower us with a new bundle of joy, an adorable little nephew) But no doubt God has been showing us more and more about himself through our son. This week has been a week of set backs for Micah, we have experienced some of the really ugly sides of autism (i.e. violent behavior, no eye contact and lots and lots of arm flapping and rocking) this week we have had to basically start back at square one. And like most moms would, I have laid awake at night heartbroken and worried. My husband and I have spent many nights this week crying out to God for help and for healing.  And what amazes me the most is that He always delivers. I woke up yesterday morning and as I opened God's Word, His truth penetrated my heart. "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars; He gives them all their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power: His understanding is beyond measure. The Lord lifts up the humble, He cast the wicked to the ground." Psalm 147:3-6
 As I read the words I realized that there was no need for those restless nights or my tears or my worries because of my powerful God; I can rest in Him, I can cast all my heartache on Him and I can forget my need to understand it all because "His understanding is beyond measure".  What an amazing peace you and I can have in Jesus. If you are experiencing heartache remember that we serve a Powerful God who heals the broken hearted. Take your troubles to cross where Jesus bore all your hurt and loss.

Crowned With Joy!!!
