Break, breaking, broken

After a night of little sleep I looked forward to my time alone with Jesus, sitting at His feet, hungry for what words He wished to share.  Journal in hand, I waited:

Do not weep for the crumbling.  Things that I allow to fall apart will either be rebuilt by My hand or were never meant to be.

Can you hold on to Me while letting go of all else?

The bitterness you taste of the ways of man is the vinegar that was brought to my lips on the cross.

Yes, I forgave, and forgive again, but what they built could not stand, and yes, even now, things built by man's hand alone will meet decay.

Hold fast then to what is good.

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-21 NKJV


Come on over to Emily's to read what others have shared with broken and imperfect hearts.

God is speaking similar things to me and it's hard to accept sometimes, but we do hold onto the good. Thank you, Karin.

Hold fast to what is good: Sometimes this is harder than we think. Thank you for this reminder today!

Nights of little sleep always lead me to His feet. So glad He gives comfort and peace there.

This was encouraging thank you, "hold fast what is good." I was just reading my bible and this poem is around the same lines of what I was reading.
