Bless the Broken Road
written by: Sandy Blaser, Healing Rain to the Nations
Yes, the road I have traveled in life has been filled with potholes, but each hardship has made me who I am today! Oh, I may look a little bruised and battered and I may even be facing more hardships in life, but yet I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to finish the work before me that the Lord has called me to do!
I am committed to serving the Lord at whatever cost. I look to the Spirit of the Lord to work in me and through me, putting absolutely no confidence in my tattered flesh! You see…God is in charge of my life through the Holy Spirit that dwells within me. I am no longer a hostage to changing circumstances, riding the ups and downs of emotions….for The jOy of the Lord is my strength of my Life!! I have found as I have yielded to the ways of the Lord, I am more alert to the needs of others around me and love to minister to those who are bruised and hurting. I absolutely refuse to be consumed by my own problems, but seek the Lord in how to share His love and encouraging words with others. Oh yes, I must still deal with my own personal trials and ordeals in my daily life, but I solely rely upon a Holy God, for in Him I have found Freedom, Liberty, and a new devotion to continue His work while on earth! Even in the midst of brokenness, I have a deep compelling desire to walk in a greater intimacy with Christ! Yes see, The Lord has faithfully given me a gift of His strength for my weakness, His Hope, for my despair, and brings relief with His healing hand. He heals my broken heart and binds up my wounds. His sweet presence is ever so near.
Therefore, I MUST finish the race, reflect the Love of Christ and share the powerful life changing Truth of God’s Saving Grace!! Oh God, Bless this Broken Road! ~ San, Healing Rain to the Nations
…However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.. Acts 20:24
