To be honest with you, this is totally out of my comfort zone. A few months ago I did not know anything about blogging. Due to a series of events I feel this is a door or avenue that God has opened for me to minister to women suffering with a broken heart.
In August 2008, I was overwhelmed with His speaking to me about this. Prior to this time, He allowed me into in situations where time after time women that I didn’t know any thing about were sharing their stories with me.
So many times I would be so discouraged because I felt there was not anything that I could do for these women. The more that I thought about these stories that I was hearing about, the more I felt God stirring my heart about some sort of ministry.
God has reminded me that there is something that I can do for these women. One, I can listen to them and encourage them. Two, I can pray for them.
I have a deep passion for prayer and one of my spiritual gift is the gift of encouragement.
I have come to realize that sometimes as individuals we cannot get to where God wants us because we are so bound by our past or current circumstances.
Over the past couple of years God has opened my heart and my eyes to what constitutes a broken heart. We can suffer from a broken heart due to sickness or death of a loved one, disappointments in relationships, divorce, job loss, financial difficulties, parent/ child relationships, present and past hurts etc. But, I have also come to realize that our hearts are able to be mended. Sometimes healing is a long journey. Unfortunately, life does not always turn out as we had planned. But I know that God is faithful and He will carry us through sufferings and disappointments and He will heal and restore our broken hearts if we will allow Him too.
I want to assure you that this is not about me. It is all about Him. I am simply trying to follow the Lord in obedience. I am doing this after much prayer and confirmation from Him.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Please feel free to leave comments and prayer request. I will commit to pray for you.
