When The Words Run Dry

When the words run dry and there is nothing left to say, grasping for words that never come. The tears fall freely and He hears our hearts in the silence. Sometimes words aren't needed to the God that formed our hearts. He never changes and His goodness never runs dry. His mercy is never ceasing and His love unfailing.

He spoke the worlds into existence, so I pray tonight that He will speak to the wounded heart in you and hold you close.

Framed and fashioned by God, Dear One, you are not hidden from Him. You are hidden in Him, gathered up and protected. Wonderfully and fearfully made, a wonder He delights in. You are not a mistake. Every dreaded misstep and battle wound that lingers serves to remind you...yet, He came to free you. Taking the stripes on His back so that you may be free.

If all you can whisper or mutter before the Lord is, "I surrender." I promise that is enough.

We don't have to fake it and act like we have it all together. We don't have to know what the next step is, we just have to trust in the unseen.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)

Maybe you can't see how God is working all things out for your good. Maybe your faith is shaken and you feel all alone. Here is a promise you can hold onto and recite until it changes the way you see things.

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." (Hebrews 10:23)

Much Love,
