Adults Colour Within the Lines
Adult colouring books are all the rage right now. I see the stunning results of individual’s colouring intricate designs and patterns. Adults even stay within the lines really well. What if they had a whole box of broken crayons? Do broken crayons still colour? Of course they do. The one who is colouring may have to peel back the paper on the crayon a little more. They may sharpen the point of the crayon. The colour is always the same. It does not change.
Do Broken Crayons Still Colour?
Right now I’m going through some difficult challenges that involve unscrupulous people. My crayon is broken in three places: Emotionally, physically and spiritually. I cannot use my box of full crayon to colour that beautiful thing called life. The decisions of immoral individuals toward me means I seemingly have no control. I do not know the outcome. This I do know: I know that God hears and answers prayer. I know that He cares intimately for me. He knows what every detail of my life is about right now. He’s known it from the beginning of time.
God Planned My Life & Yours
He planned it before I was born and Jesus already knows the outcome. He makes broken crayons still colour. Humbly asking Him to take care of me is reaching out to Him in faith. I know he cover s every inch of the pattern that is my life since He knows I am broken. He knows that I am putting my trust, my faith in Him to be my champion. Are you trusting Him dear one?
The Righteous Person May Have Troubles
Psalm 34:17-19 (NIV)
17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all.
God Gives Us our Abilities
David, in Psalm 34 knew who God was. He was in a situation (see 1 Samuel 21) that seemed impossible to get away from. Yet God gave him the ability to think on his feet and to get away from a dangerous situation. God has big hands for the outcome of this evil and I have put my faith in my Saviour. He will never leave me He will never forsake me. This broken crayon still colours because God Himself create the masterpiece He intended.
Are you going through something beyond your control dear one? Are you afraid that the outcome will hurt you and yours? Take it to your Saviour Jesus Christ. He knows all about it and is working on your behalf.
