When I woke up this morning I heard these words in my head from a Dewayne Woods song, “God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever…” Now I hadn’t heard that song in a while so I felt that was the Holy Spirit sending me a message, so I Googled the words to see what scripture that came from. It was from Psalm 73:26 which says, “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” These words were right on time because today I go to court for my final divorce hearing. So what I took from this scripture is that God was telling me He is the one who strengthens and heals my heart. It showed me that God cares about what I will go through today. He sent me a word to encourage me today. I’m so thankful that He cares.
When I look back over these two years of being separated from my husband, I can see how God has strengthened my heart. Who I was the day that my husband left is different from who I am today, and it’s all because of God. He sent me scriptures that spoke to me. He blessed me with friends to encourage and support me. He sent me to counseling to help me learn about me. He protected me as I healed. For all of that , I am truly grateful. Today, as I face the reality of ending a broken marriage, my heart feels strengthened and at peace. Thank you Lord for being the strength of my heart and my portion forever. I love you.
I don’t know what you may be going through today, but know that God cares. You may feel alone but know that you’re never alone. He is always there. Quiet your mind and heart and listen to what He wants to say to you. He is always speaking and has a message just for you.
