Have you entered Humpty Dumpty’s world? Do you feel like you’re teetering on the brink of destruction? About to fall apart?
Mom’s raising kids with mental illness (MI) didn’t choose the wall we’re ‘sitting’ on. Our emotions are as fragile as our children’s at times. We wonder who will put us together again if we splinter. Thankfully, we don’t have to rely on all the king’s horsemen and all the king’s men who couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again. Our heavenly Father is the King who holds us together again. And again.
When our child has a great fall, God holds us together. His loving arms are there to catch us. And soften the blow.
Our Creator was, “before all things, and in him all things hold together (Colossians 1:17).”
In Him all things hold together. Creation. Our lives. Our child. And us.
The Bible assures us that we will not shatter in the face of our trial. God’s power in us is unbreakable.
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed (2 Corinthians 4:7-9).”
We have evidence of His power all around.
As long as chairs don’t disintegrate when we sit on them, we know that God holds the molecules together. As long as we can enjoy beautiful waterfall, we know God’s invisible gravity is still working.
Each season reminds us God is still revolving the earth around the sun. Each sunrise assures us God is still spinning the earth on its axis.
Life seems chaotic at times. But we can trust in His invisible order.
A magnet holds photos on our refrig. Representing God’s control of unseen forces. Birds migrate to just the right place. Showing us God is in control of guiding His creations. Water evaporates and later falls again as rain. Proving God is in control of cycles in life. Our bodies heal from colds and cuts. Demonstrating God is in control of the healing power He created in all of us.
He’s also given us visible examples of His masterful designs. Each person’s DNA proves there is order in His creations. We have visible displays of His order in each unique thumb print or snowflake. We find it in the colorful patterns on each butterfly or on Macaw birds. Exquisite symbols which tell us, “God can restore order in your life.”
We spot His power in creation. We detect it in forces like gravity. And we can sense His power working inside of us. Keeping us from breaking.
Listen to ‘Because He Lives’ and picture God holding you while He holds the future in His hands.
