Not a Broken Bone

18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;

20 He protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.

Psalms 34:18-20

It really doesn’t matter how bad things get in one’s life or how disappointed one feels; the LORD will pull us through.  Yesterday evening we were watching one of my husband’s all time favorite movies, Forest Gump.  It makes him laugh as I never see him laugh with other movies.  Why?  Don’t know (sigh), guess it’s just one of those silly movies he likes.  But the funny thing is that halfway through the movie, he wants to stop watching it, and guess why?  It makes him CRY!  There are moments in the movie that make him reminiscent of his life.  And this morning as I read chapter 34 of Psalms, I was reminded how God NEVER leaves us brokenhearted or like Forest Gump, He never leaves us in the middle of a battle to die.  Many times, He rescues us because we have called upon His name, even when we’ve given up.  The bones in the body of a person are what sustains and protects the vital organs of the body.  God knows that, and when we seek Him for help in all of our life, He will not allow a single bone of ours to be broken.  We might get bruised up a bit, but the vitality of our life is in God’s prescious hands…He will not let us go!

    Amen!

    That is what drives me crazy in love with God- the fact that he will not let us go. Sometimes we even ask Him to let us be, yet He waits patiently for us to call Him for rescue.

    You know when older generations say about the younger generations because things have gotten easier for us..”They don’t know how good they have it!”. We are so blessed!
