Strong Hearts

A message for the brokenhearted today. You're story is not over. God still turns broken into beautiful.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. -Psalm 147:3

Broken To Beautiful

Broken, shattered,
Pieces scattered.
Is this my life?
Dreams have crumbled,
Idols tumbled.
Nothing left.

Nail-scarred hands,
Heart that understands,
You hold my life.
Healer of the broken,
Truth you’ve spoken,
You are all I need.

My pieces repairing,
While broken, preparing,
A new life for me.
The best plan you weave,
Help me receive,
Your will for me.

Transformed through the pain,
No longer the same,
You are my life.
Your grace shining through,
You change broken to

(by Joanna K. Harris)

He has made everything beautiful in its time. -Ecclesiastes 3:11a

Joanna, God heals the broken hearted, just as you said. He knows you and never leaves you. Over and over God has shown HIS faithfulness. Today Renee and Daniel are flying from Alaska to Arizona. What a summer they have had. Many prayers have been answered. Thank you for praying with me. We are back in central Mexico so grateful the the good health God has blessed us with. Many are coming to know Christ and serving Him. Thank you for sharing your words of encouragement to us. IN HIS CARE Olivia
