I think that the advice I would give to my own children, if I only had one piece to offer, would be to “always listen to Your Gut; He will never fail you”. Not sure if that’s really true, that I would give that, but, right now, at this moment, it’s fitting, and, I like it! A lot. So, maybe that is the piece I would give…:P???…
Our Gut will never fail us…Our Gut will never fail us…mm, mm, mm. This is just another way of saying, “thank you, Papa, for talking with us, guiding us”…or, “wow! I feel that energy…it sure is powerful! I can feel it traveling through my body!”
We’ll continue to experience this love even when our lives feel broken into a bunch of pieces. Papa looks at it as an opportunity to mend our broken hearts. To “practice Kintsugi, a centuries-old Japanese art of mending broken pottery”. The broken pieces are ‘sealed with gold dust mixed with resin. So, instead of trying to hide the repair, the art makes something beautiful out of brokenness.’
What a great analogy for illustrating the kind of love that is at our fingertips, IF we want it!
We have to do our part, though. God really wants us to have a humble heart and show our appreciation for his forgiveness for when we when we do an “ouch”.
Something we can say out loud: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting”.
I need to memorize that! I fall in the trap of anxiety. Yes. But! Seeking strategies to pull me through is always practiced! 🙂
Ahh…the ‘beauty of brokenness’… 😛
Psalm 51 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit.
“Loving Father, I want to bring You joy by having a humble and repentant heart today.”
