1 Peter 5:10 “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strength, settle you” (KJV).
The path we take for our prayers to be answered is harder and even longer sometimes. Our path sometimes includes our past choices and the consequences that come with our choices, along with growth, and through our healing, then our prayers will be answered. BUT GUESS WHAT??? GOD IS WITH US EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. God will never leave us. There are somethings we have to go through, but he will always be there to pick up our broken pieces. So, for a little while, we may suffer through our broken pieces, to gain the strength to restore us into whom he wants us to be. I was reading something the other day that stood out to me. It read “There are three key things to remember when you are on your journey getting close to God. We should remember this when we have broken pieces: You are not alone, develop a relationship with God, and believe that God’s word is true”. Now you’re probably saying what does she mean by this? Well, with you are not alone means…YOU are not alone there are others who have broken pieces, although other people's broken pieces are not the same as yours, they too have to suffer through their broken pieces to get where God wants them to be. Developing a relationship with God means just that. We must establish a relationship with God. We may acknowledge who God is, but do we really know WHO God is, not really, not until we begin to study his word, trust that God is working out a plan for us while praying. In addition to all this, we have to remember that God’s word is true. God’s word never changes, he will give us all that we need and help us get through those broken pieces. Psalms 37:4 says, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (KJV). Studying, trusting, and knowing that God’s word is true will help you through those broken pieces.
