“He won’t brush aside the bruised and the hurt and he won’t disregard the small and insignificant, but he’ll steadily and firmly set things right.” Isaiah 42:3 The Message
Do you know …?
… There is nothing in your life too small or insignificant to escape His care. There is nothing in your life that has been bruised .. is bruised .. or will be bruised that is beyond His whole reach. There is nothing in your life that is out of joint or unsteady that He cannot make whole in His time. Your whole life was His mission. He was born to save you. You mean that much to Him. It took His whole life to reach all of your bruises and hurts. It took His whole life to reach all of the small and insignificant places of your life. It still takes His whole life to set you firmly on your feet. You may stumble from time to time … bruised … battered … feeling disregarded. Jesus is not going to walk away from your life. Why not? Because Jesus is making you whole … and that leaves you room to love Him and others in the world you live in.
“My part is to put them on their feet alive and whole at the completion of time.” john 6:40 The Message
