Throughout the past week or so, I have been bringing some beautiful peony flowers into the office. If you haven’t seen a peony flower before; they definitely remind me of an oversized carnation, with the most beautiful scent.
Anyways…it seemed as if no one was going to enjoy these flowers outside; because I was gradually bringing them all into the office to enjoy myself, as I love these flowers very much…plus I love to bring flowers in the office to Jesus.
After getting down to the last few flowers; I found myself looking at this one poor bud that was struggling to open. At first, I thought that I would leave it on the bush; but later, I went back out the front door and decided to bring it in and see what may happen…and as I’m sitting here visiting with you right now…it’s starting to open up…and it appears as if it will be the only brighter pink flower from that bush…amazing!
Earlier in the day…God began to place a song on my mind, titled… “Friend of a Wounded Heart”…and as I’ve been sitting here looking at that wounded flower; I have come to see that by giving it a chance to come in the house and drink some fresh water; that the flower seemed to have left its wounds behind…to open up and enjoy life.
You know…sometimes we can be like that flower…wounded and struggling through life; but when God comes along and takes us into His arms of love; He has a way of also mending what has been broken deep within…and once we find ourselves experiencing that kind of selfless love; that is when we find that we aren’t alone; but rather, we have a friend…One who truly cares about all that is hurting us.
Through time, I have definitely come to see that God longs to be the friend of the wounded heart. In fact…I have also come to see that when we struggle to reach Him, due to the wounds we bear; that He will meet us at that place of despair and be there for us…to help, in healing the wounds that have torn us apart.
Many of us are walking through the battlefields of uncertainty and despair…and there can be times when we are hit by evil and wounded deeply; but I know a personal friend of mine, who will meet us there…to heal and restore that which has been broken deep within…One who will mend the brokenness, while only leaving a scar; that will continually remind us of His true love and faithfulness to us…and that friend is Jesus.
No matter how deep the wound…and no matter how hopeless these moments may appear to be; this is not the time to give into the wound and what has taken place; but rather, now is the time to turn to the One, who can be a friend to your wounded heart. Won’t you turn to Him today? One thing I can say for sure…He will meet you there and be the best and most sincere friend you could ever have…One who will not only remain close, during these difficult times; but One who will truly become the remedy you need, while facing what seems to be the most hopeless situation in your life.
Have a very blessed day in the Lord…and may you truly find God to be a friend for your wounded heart!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
