How To Fix What’s Broken

I thank God every day for my long-suffering husband. He doesn’t let it rattle him when I get into one of my bad-hair-day-life’s-unfair-and-no-one-love’s-me rants. 
And he’s pretty much learned that what I need during those times is just to be heard. I don’t need Mr. Fix-It.

Besides, when it comes to the deep down wounds, there’s only one place to go for mending. 
Only One who can fix a life.
“For the Lord is the great God,
    the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
    and the mountain peaks belong to him.”
Psalm 95:3-4 

Are you singing with me? 
“He’s got the whole world in his hands…”


Did you notice the scripture says that God’s hand holds not only mountain peaks but “the depths of the earth”.


And that’s how it is with our lives.
He holds us through the ups and downs and everything in between.


I have to trust Him to hold me together because, when I try to do it myself, I unravel.

I read a great post about this over at Scooper’s place, A la Mode. (Don’t you love that name?) 

 The truth is, we are human. But in the midst of our mess, bad hair days and all, God is faithful. 

And that is something worth singing about.

Where to Find God

When we are tired. When we are weak. When we are thirsty.

There is One who is able to fill the deepest longings of our heart.

And when we call to Him, He hears us. And when we search for Him, we find Him right where we are.

No matter what you’re going through today, I hope this song will encourage you to know that God is with you. No matter what is weighing you down, He can lift you up.

 “Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Troubles chasing me again,
Breaking down my best defense,
I’m looking, God, I’m looking for you
Weary just won’t let me rest and fear is filling up my head.
I’m longing, God I’m longing for you

But I will find you in the place I’m in, find you when I’m at my end,
Find you when there’s nothing left of me to offer you except for brokenness.
You lift me up, you’ll never leave me thirsty,
When I am weak, when I am lost and searching
I’ll find you on my knees.

So what if sorrow shakes my faith,
What if heartache still remains,
I’ll trust you, my God I’ll trust you.
‘Cause You are faithful and

I will find you in the place I’m in, find you when I’m at my end,
Find you when there’s nothing left of me to offer you except for brokenness.
You lift me up, you’ll never leave me thirsty,
When I am weak, when I am lost and searching
I’ll find you on my knees, my knees.

When my hope is gone, when the fear is strong
When the pain is real, when it’s hard to heal
When my faith is shaken and my heart is broken and my joy is stolen, God I know that

You lift me up, you’ll never leave me thirsty,

Find you in the place I’m in, find you when I’m at my end,
Find you when there’s nothing left of me to offer you except for brokenness.
You lift me up, you’ll never leave me thirsty,
When I am weak, when I am lost and searching
I’ll find you on my knees
