The Meaning.

God is good.
God is good.
God is good.

Lately, I’ve been in a good place. I love it here… it’s hard, yet, worth every second.
My Lord and Savior, Creator of the Universe, Designer of my heart, Artist of the skies, my beautiful Shepherd has been revealing Himself to me. Me! Even in my lowest moments, He chooses to speak… to whisper His wisdom and love to me.

I have had my rough spots. Worse than rough.

One morning this week I found myself completely crying out to Him. I was mad… I told Him I hated what I was faced with and that I couldn’t do it any longer. I was done. All the while, in a way so unique to my Shepherd, He reminded me that it was not by MY might or MY power, but only by HIS Spirit that I could continue on. That I WOULD continue on.

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” -Zechariah 4:6

He also loving reminded me that I was being completely self-centered and over-dramatic. Yep. Truth.
Haha 🙂 Later on that day He spoke to me some more when I was in a stable condition. Like, able to breath and see clearly. Haha.

Our GOD knows everything about us. He has formed us to the smallest detail. He’s planned every part of our lives and made them exactly the way He wanted. His will for us is PERFECT. Yet, so often we tell Him He’s wrong, He’s not good enough, He doesn’t know what He’s doing…
I can only imagine that this breaks His heart. His own children that He loves unconditionally are disappointed in the life He’s made for them. He cares for us even in our sin, and reaches His hand of forgiveness to whomever is willing to turn to Him. It’s a beautiful picture. Though, without thinking, we tend to reject it. Our eyes are so set on ourselves that we can’t see Him… or even His love for us.

I’m sure you’ve heard the song Hosanna by Hillsong United. And I’m sure you love the bridge.

“Heal my heart and make it clean.
Open up my eyes to the things unseen.
Show me how to love like You have loved me.
Break my heart for what breaks Yours.
Everything I have for Your Kingdom’s cause.
As I walk from earth into eternity…”

…break MY HEART for what breaks YOURS!
Are we broken over our ungratefulness?
Are we broken over the fact that we have criticized God Almighty?
Are broken over continually breaking God’s heart?

I don’t really know where any of this is going or where it has been. But it’s what has been on my heart. It hurts me to know that I would tell my Jesus He’s not doing things right. The thought brings tears to my eyes.

What is the meaning of that line? That line that has convicted me over and over, and has also meant many things to me; that line has hit home again.

It breaks my heart that I would break Yours.
I’m sorry. I love You. Thank You…

“In Christ alone, my hope is found.
He is my Light, my Strength, my Song.
This Cornerstone, this Solid Ground;
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace!
When fears are stilled, when striving cease.
My Comforter, my All in all… Here in the Love of Christ,
I stand.
