He Restores My Soul by Nan Jones
The mountain stream tumbled over the rocks, softening the jagged edges, smoothing the crevices into one complete beautiful stone. Day after day, moment by moment, the flowing water did its work transforming the broken places of the stone.
I think of the broken places in my life – the loss of loved ones, unemployment, a beautiful marriage destroyed. I think of the jagged places that are sharp and painful. I think of the crevices that run deep and allow my heart to bleed when I least expect it.
And then I think of the Living Water of my God that flows over and through my heart. Day after day, moment by moment … ever-flowing, ever-washing, ever-smoothing away the jagged, broken places.
His grace is amazing indeed.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
~ Psalm 23:1-3, NLT
