Crushed Dreams




Crushed dreams


Crushed Dreams


Sometimes it feels like we’re walking on crushed dreams. The shards piercing us in places we didn’t even know we were open and vulnerable in.

 

The urgent cry of our hearts is to close rank, put up a hard exterior and just try harder to avoid being hurt again.

 

I’m resisting that urge with all I’ve got. Hard work and striving never fix our hurts. Sure, we can get things done, but our hearts aren’t aching from some task left undone. They’re aching from the disappointment life serves us, or the heartache of failed relationships, or financial strain so significant it feels like there is no way out. Or if we’re honest, all three of these things pierce us at once.

 

Surrendering to God and willingly staying vulnerable seems impossible, but it’s our best option. Pushing in and exposing our hearts in an even deeper way with the Lord is our only viable option for healing. Scary.

 

So I don’t know where you are. But I’m choosing to push in deeper with the Lord and refusing to let confusion, disappointment and discouragement have any piece of my heart.

 

The Lord is more than able to help when we humble ourselves and ask for support. It’s wild to think that the Maker of heaven and earth desires to help us and is on our side. It’s a very humbling thought. I’m going to try to keep my heart trained on His unfailing love instead of my crushed heart. He has a solution for me. I just don’t know it yet.

 

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2, NIV)

 

God has a solution for you, too. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy, but He will reveal His plan as we stay vulnerable and humble to Him.

 

If this is your season of crushed dreams. Let me know how I can pray for you.

 

Prayer for you and me: Lord, help. Life has dealt us a vicious blow. Turning to You is our only option. Thank You, that you are ever present and more than willing to help. Teach us to take our vulnerability to You instead of others. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
