To be Crushed is to Readjust.

Updated: Jun 15, 2022

It’s the things that crush us that are a catalyst for us to soar.

Sometimes our lives can be a contradiction to our faith.

Yet we don’t give up because it’s our faith that’s way ahead of the game.

We see the promises even when we’re caught up in a malleable process.

We are hammered indelibly out of shape without shattering or cracking.

That’s the beauty of Gods grace.

To shape us while we sit in an uncomfortable space.

To let silence open our ears to what God wants us to erase.

Opening our hearts to let go of past mistakes.

Embracing the cold that has pierced our souls.

Unraveling the false narratives that disrupt the true story thats been waiting to be told.

Faith fills all the empty holes.

Hope shatters the earthly molds.

Love heals the deepest wounds and even from an empty Tomb Jesus showed us this proof.

He was crushed, persecuted, and died.

Yet he also rose again to reveal all the lies.

What a warrior who battled time after time.

So, when you’re feeling crushed I hope you remember this scripture “ the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”

You’re a masterpiece created by the highest.

Yet you are also an artist.

There is no one else like you.

So keep on painting the canvas is patiently waiting for you.

Bask in his glory as God reveals the full picture of nothing but the truth. ✨

Live & Love in Truth My friends ♥️

I really like this entry. A lot of truth in these words.

Every time we feel defeated or crushed in life, returning to God and scripture make the comeback that much easier. Getting up again and again and again while seeking God's direction is the only way to truly overcome life's challenging circumstances. TY for sharing. Love the entries~ Keep writing and inspiring Melody. Your words write a beautiful melody every time.

I love that theme of painting the canvas of your life so much!! It reminds me of the last stanza of the British poet William Ernest Henley's poem Invictus which says, "It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul." That poem is so captivating to me because in it I feel a sense of divine appointment, & that with enough grit & perseverance I can become who God created me to be. I have seen some Christians comment that it's a terrible poem because only God is the master of our fate. What they miss is the promise & peril of…
