One who knows

“Each heart knows its own bitterness and no one else can share its joy.” Proverbs 14:10

Maybe it’s time to take unrealistic expectations off other people. No matter how well I try to explain what I’m going through to others, they’ll never completely know how I feel. They can’t, and that’s okay, because God knows.

He sees every detail of my life. He knows every twinge and hurt endured along the way. I can come to him with my need for mercy, healing and peace.

He knows the thrill when something good happens. Others may get it to an extent, but there is one who understands completely.

Yes, we share with others. We tell the griefs, share the joys and listen to theirs. We carry each others burdens the best we can. But if I’m looking for another person to fully get it and understand, my search is going to be futile.

Here is my comfort: “But he knows the way that I take … ” Job 23:10

There is One who knows and may He keep you in His tender care.

Thwarted arrows

 “In the shelter of your presence you hide them … in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.” Psalm 31:20

Where is the arrow

shot from enemy’s bow?

Where are the accusations

that have been thrown?

…..

They’ve been thwarted,

diverted from my path.

Dispersed, fallen,

and of strength — sapped.

…..

Keep me in your presence,

hidden in perfect love.

Safe from accusing tongues,

restored and ready to serve.

…..

He shuts out accusing voices. He stills the echo of negative words and constant criticism. He quiets the soul. In His presence I am hidden, tucked under his sheltering wings — out of sight and out of mind from those who would bring down.
