FROM http://www.merriam-webster.com

 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.

In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP)

I still struggle with this one.  Being left too many times in my life has left an open scar, an open wound. Too many deserters in my Army. Help us Lord; bind up the broken-hearted, in Jesus Name.

Meet Her in Her Brokenness

Meet Her in Her Brokenness

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

They were married for years when he said goodbye.
Walked away from promises he made.
She found herself forsaken, betrayed.
Lord, meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
She kneels by her bed every night in prayer.
Praying for a child lost in addiction;
drinking and drugging to numb the pain.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
The kids moved out, and the house is too quiet.
She’s left with boxes of her memories.
Trying to figure out where time went.
Lord, meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
