A Broken Heart

[The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Psalm 34: 17-22

Hear my cry O' Great God, and deliver my soul from all of its afflictions.

When you don't know what to do...

I chose the Internet name faithfullyclever because I have always liked the word clever. I could not tell you what bible translation I read what I am about to write, but I think it was somewhere in Proverbs. It said that "A clever man is wise because he knows what to do." To tell you the truth, I do not feel very clever right now if I go by that definition of it. However, I am not utterly without all hope, because my hope is in the Lord. I know that no matter what happens in this life, I will receive something so much greater in the next. We all desire a great life here on earth and I do not see anything wrong with that. It is when we start to face what is impossible that everything we believe gets tested. My faith is rock solid, I can tell you that, but I am in a moment where I really can not see what is going to become of this earthly life God has given me. On the other had though, I can be sure of a few things. I can be sure that whatever God has planed for me, I will not be disappointed and it is my intention for his will to be done in my life. I will not be disappointed, because I trust him completely and what he says in the bible. The bible says that "God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." It also says that "no eye hath seen and no ear has heard what God has planned for those that love him." It says that "If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land, but if you disobey and rebel, you shall be punished." It is my intent to be fully willing and obedient in whatever God has assigned for me to do. It is only then that I will be able to "eat the good of the land".
Abba Father, I trust you, no matter what you have planned for my life, so be it! In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen! and Amen!
